A zany comedy about a clique of millennials, brimming with wit and veracity.

Fifteen years after being sent to group therapy to survive their parents’ divorce, Nola, Mads, Hennie, Tia, and Hugo continue to stick together as they struggle with the challenges of adult life. In her podcast, “Damaged Goods”, Nola discusses not only her own innermost feelings and problems, but also shares the personal stories of her friends — without their knowledge. It’s only a matter of time before they find out!
