In 2019, who gets to define love?
According to a growing number of Americans, love today means not limiting yourself–or your partner–to just one. Polyamory, or the practice of intimate relationships with more than one partner is on the rise.
A 2016 national poll found that 31 percent of women and 38 percent of men thought their ideal relationship would include some form of consensual non-monogamy. But despite this interest, polyamory is still very much stigmatized.
“Beyond the One: Exploring Modern Polyamory” is a short documentary that uncovers American ideals of love and partnership by following individuals who dare to live outside our romantic norms.
This Valentine’s Day, follow two women, author Sophie Lucido Johnson and YouTuber Sharon Rosenburg, as they practice polyamory and in so doing, challenge what it means to find “The One.”
