Four young people flee from London and set up in a polyamorous commune in the country, choosing total isolation as a form of emotional, intellectual, and political hiding place. As their inhibitions and past traumas fade, they achieve unique kind of collective happiness, but the durability of their new living arrangement is tested by the arrival of an outsider.
