Seven years marks a point in many romances when couples find themselves restless and dissatisfied; some even wonder what it would be like if they had picked a different partner. Seven Year Switch lets them find out as it follows the journeys of couples at a breaking point. Each of the couples participate in an innovative experiment known as “switch therapy” in which they swap partners and take part in experimental relationships with a stranger for two weeks. It is the ultimate social experiment to determine whether absence really does make the heart grow fonder.
