Description:

After 15 years together, Marie and Boris are calling it quits, but until they can resolve the details of their separation agreement — most notably the division of their prize asset, the magazine-photo-worthy apartment they share with their young twin daughters — they're still living together.

 Marie is the breadwinner in the relationship, but it was her family's wealth, not her salary, that allowed the couple to purchase their stylish apartment. This is a fact that Boris, a contractor currently between jobs, never lets her forget since it was his renovation work that added significant value to the property.

After Love reveals the complexities of their relationship and the depth of the cracks in it.
