Meet the couple every couple wants to be. Attractive and immaculately turned out, they are the perfect team. Tomorrow they will be in Stockholm, a city where, in summer, the sun shines 24/7 and sometimes it's dark all day long. Today, it's his birthday and she's going to give him all his presents, treats and surprises. Treading a fine line between tenderness and cruelty, "Stockholm" reveals a relationship unravelling. It's beautiful, but it's not pretty.
