The film portraits an absorbingly detailed snapshot of a troubled family. Marko, a thirty-something author in Berlin, leaves the city with his son Zowie to visit his parents in their countryside home. Upon arrival, he finds his small family filled with announcements — the biggest being that his mother, Gitte, has ceased her longfollowed course of medication for manic depression. Soon buried truths surface and Gitte takes a dramatic action that tests the already strained relations among the family.
