Is there really only one soul mate in the world that completes us?

Quattro Metà racconta le storie di quattro persone che si incontrano a una cena e si accoppiano per formare due coppie romantiche. Ma, la storia prende una svolta interessante quando intravediamo una realtà alternativa e vediamo cosa accadrebbe se i protagonisti dovessero accoppiarsi in modo diverso. Quale rapporto funziona meglio? Insieme, rifletteremo non solo sulla grammatica italiana e sul nuovo vocabolario, ma discuteremo anche l’idea: esistono coppie perfette??
