A whole generation of lesbian women is about to disappear. The first open generation. Not a Man In Sight portraits three groups of lesbian women – all at different stages in life.
A young girl living at home with her parents, seeking her identity, defining herself as polyamorous rather than lesbian and experiments with different relationships.
An adult couple who got married and left a free, careless existence in the progressive culture for a traditional family life with children.
An aging couple, fighting cancer and dreaming of watching the sunset together on the Island of Lesbos.
The film premiered on TV2 in Norway, 12 October 2011, and on SVT2 in Sweden, 12 April 2012.
