Here is the summary of the history of Love adults as officially provided by Netflix:

Love adults is a thriller filled with twists and turns, and where nothing is what it seems. It seems that Christian (Dar Salim) and Leonora (Sonja Richter) have it all. They are living a perfect life with their son, who has just been declared healthy after a serious long-term illness. Their future finally looks bright, but at a party at Christian’s entrepreneurial firm, Leonora sees her husband with a younger wife, architect Xenia (Sus Wilkins). Leonora realizes that Christian could leave her. How could he? How could he leave the woman who sacrificed his career? The woman who sacrificed everything to take care of her son and his family? On the spot, Leonora makes a decision: she refuses to be the woman left behind – by any means necessary.

Barbara Rothenborg, Director, says:

“To me, Loving Adults is a dark and twisted, thrilling yet sexy film about the terrible things that we men and women can end up doing to each other, if we push them too far… This is the very thin line between love and hate – and how jealousy and bitterness can bring out the worst in each of us. A subject that I have always found extremely fascinating, and with my sensitivity and my visual style, and my general love for the genre, with this incredible cast, I can’t wait to bring this spooky story to life.
