Jay and Nico dont even believe in ghosts, yet they seem to be still here. Still in love with Rasmus and Rosn. And maddeningly powerless. Both are incapable of leaving the living alone: Jay plays matchmaker, convinced that Rasmus and Risn can heal each other; Nico, plagued by jealousy, doesnt agree. Rasmus and Risn are just trying to navigate their newly widowed lives. But all four of them are thinking the same thing: what is love, after death? What is it for? And what are we to do with it?
