Every month the European Parliament moves from Brussels to its seat in Strasbourg. A week later everything is moved back again. The unconventional love story &ME takes place against this attempt to maintain European idealism and unity.
&ME tells the story of Eduard, a gay and disillusioned bureaucrat, who leaves Berlin for Brussels to take up a post within the European Parliament. There he meets the beautiful and idealistic young trainee Edurne, from Spain, who has finally escaped the clutches of her over-protective mother. Edurne falls madly for Eduard, a handsome, sophisticated man that she can show off to the world. And Eduard is happy to go along with the situation, surprised at the level of affection he feels for this young woman. He might even call it love, because love - c'est bizarre.
But then the attractive Richard comes on the scene, and is soon to be the focus of both Eduard and Edurne's attention. Will Richard turn out to be the glue that holds them together - or the wedge that drives them apart? And can they all, in the process, discover that elusive thing called happiness?
The &ME screenplay is based on the novel "Fremdkörper" by bestseller author Oscar van den Boogaard. His books are sold and translated in The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, the UK, the US and Canada.
