A man and a woman meet in a hotel to live out their sexual fantasies. The pair are celebrating their tenth anniversary and such no-holds-barred meetings have become a tradition -- the role-plays break up the routine of their marriage. This year, however, things go differently: more and more lies surface and their relationship is put to the test. Love Birds  portrays a love caught between suffering and lust, desire and suspicion. With a mixture of explicit footage and sensitive psychology, the film creates a sensual atmosphere of rare intimacy.
