Three couples are drifting apart. A hedgehog falls for a balloon, but struggles to keep up with his grooming routine. There is a coldness between an arctic couple, and two oysters are longing to meet. 

In the highlands, a hedgehog has fallen in love with a balloon. He tries to go against his own nature to be with her. When a grumpy polar bear finally gets away from a needy penguin, new motivation and problems seem to appear. On the bottom of the north sea two oysters are glowing from expectations towards their approaching encounter, but their love for each other and a hard shell might not be enough to protect them from overhanging danger.
