Engaged, but not exclusive.

On Tuesday, Jan 26., HBO Max released a trailer for its new documentary feature, There Is No "I" in Threesome, which follows a newly engaged couple as they embark on an open relationship.

"That's Zoe, she's an actress and this is me, Ollie. I make films," director and star Jan Oliver Lucks starts off in the trailer below. "We got engaged one year ago and have been in an open relationship for three months."

While Zoe and Ollie may be "in love," as the preview touts, they are not exclusive. This is made abundantly clear as the trailer teases plenty of hookups, including the pair's "first threesome."

On why the twosome has chosen to explore polyamory, Ollie explains, "The idea is to highlight an alternative to monogamy. That you can have your cake and eat it too."

Yet, Ollie does warn, "That's how it started anyway."

Although Ollie mentions insisting on "some rules," he finds himself with "a girlfriend as well as a fiancée."

Speaking for the traditional monogamists in the audience, Ollie's friend quips, "You got a fiancée, you don't need a girlfriend."

The situation becomes more complicated as Zoe struggles with jealousy over Ollie's budding relationship with a new partner. She informs her fiancé, "Just don't go see her all the time."

Later on, Zoe says "jealousy is just this thing" that they've discussed. Still, Ollie appears to experience envy as Zoe gets a new partner.

He's heard declaring, "I want to stop!"

In fact, Zoe goes on to wonder if Ollie would leave her if it wasn't for the film. Yikes!

The trailer concludes, "It's an experiment in love, a test of a commitment, but in the end someone always gets screwed."

There Is No "I" in Threesome begins streaming on HBO Max on Thursday, Feb. 11.
