Company follows an anti-hero bachelor Robert as he makes his way through a series of encounters with April (the stewardess), Kathy (the girl who’s going to marry someone else), Marta (the peculiar one), as well as with his married friends. On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. In vignette after hilarious vignette, we are introduced to those good and crazy people, his married friends, as Robert weighs the pros and cons of married life. In the end, he realises being alone is alone, not alive.
