When Alice and Dan meet their connection is undeniable; it's clear they are meant to be. But are they ready for each other? Confined in their small London flat, they magnify their differences, create conflict out of nothing, and slowly tear each other down. A plus D is a raw, edgy, and intensely intimate documentary-like examination of all the aspects of their romantic and sexual involvement, unflinchingly challenging the idea of public versus private. As Alice and Dan simply try to ‘get along’ we are reminded of our own weaknesses and destructive patterns, all the while wondering: how do we know when it’s worth holding on?
