Downshifters

Scripted TV 25.11.2015 Elisa Viihde, YLE

A very successful mid 30’s couple finds they are struggling and at a financial dead-end. They are forced to make an extreme life changing decision in order to pay off their debts, putting an end to their luxurious lifestyle.

The couple has to sell their upscale home in a trendy area of town and move into a small rental apartment in the seedy suburbs. When questioned by their friends and family they sell the idea as a voluntary new lifestyle “downshifting” trend that their generation is doing these days.

The couple is unaware that their close friends are facing similar difficulties and both couples move into an old concrete apartment complex. Unemployment and dead-end jobs are the norm for their neighbors; the buildings in the block are vibrant with domestic conflict and noise. Amidst all this the couples keep up the facade of enjoying the downshifting life, and make every penny stretch to the limit.

The situation is abnormal, though the theme is universal; how deep is their love, can it also be stretched to the limit, or will it fail? Friendships are tested, under what circumstances will a friend turn their back on you?
