Seven years later, Bobby, who has become a cook, joins up with Jonathan in New York. Jonathan lives with Clare, an older woman, in an apartment. Their relation is rather ambiguous, Jonathan having homosexual encounters with multiple partners and Clare wanting a child from the young man. Clare falls in love with Bobby and Jonathan leaves then the apartment to join up with his parents in Arizona.

When Jonathan's father dies, Bobby and Clare visit Jonathan. On their way back home, the three friends decide to buy a house lost in the American countryside. Clare gives birth to a small girl and Bobby and Jonathan open a coffee shop downtown. But will their mutual friendship and love be able to stand up to the tensions such a situation can inevitably generate?
