Jonna is an ambitious career woman in her 30´s, whose life appears to be in order in every way: she is the star of the advertising agency, has a distinguished husband and two children. Jonna lives a double life. She is not satisfied with a steady marriage and searches for temporary sexual partners, believing that she is in control of the situation. The one night stands and affairs draw her into cycle of dependency, which she cannot get out of.

The out of control obsession leads into a downward spiral both at home and at work. Niklas, her husband suffers the most, at night while waiting for his wife to come home, he puts their children to bed and reads them bedtime stories. Alex, a young and handsome yachtsman, enters Jonna´s world of deceit, but he is playing his own game with his own rules. Jonna is hooked on him and to her dismay realizes that to him she is but a new name on an already long list.

Addiction is the tale of a woman´s sexuality and the progression of something natural into an obsession.
