Four couples attend weekly therapy sessions, revealing their vulnerabilities, with the cameras ever present.
Therapist Dr. Orna Guralnik even shows her own vulnerabilities, for example the need to guide a relationship back within the timing and time constraints of a couple on the brink. On occasion we see the therapists method of gentle guiding on to topics the partners are not always comfortable with. The therapist manages these transitions without the aparent influence of any ego.
One remark indicated the therapist did not want to scare away an important apparently domineering personality. Later it is revealed the other partner had techniques of empowerment within the relationship.
The show is beautifully shot and edited, with sounds tracks to match.
Viewers can feel the pain of the partners, as they discover elements of their own character, shaped by their childhood and traumas.
"Just knowing people are relying on you to help them through, that's a heavy duty."
