For half an eternity, Henrik and Margareta have stuck together, for fear of being alone and making decisions. The brittle familial harmony collapses when their two daughters come over for dinner. Eva (42) is successful in her job, but visibly frustrated in a childless marriage. She stubbornly keeps to herself about this and prefers to chat about her new designer suit. Anna (38) on the other hand, who supports herself and her two children as a waitress in a gay bar, and so has no sense for Gucci shoes, can't wait to lift the fog of friendliness, which emanates mostly from the mother... "What happens is actually impossible. Because typically you don't simply go home to your parents, tossing the question straight in their faces: What have you done with me? Why do I feel like shit now? What happened back then?... According to the rules, the answers could only be repetitions of old lies and - maybe some more coffee?... But here, there will be (eventually) a reconciliation with life, as it has been lived. In the end, the four are not just a family – they are four human beings, each one with his own truth."
