Martin is 11 years old and faces a new dimension: middle school. He soon realizes that in his classroom, he is the only one having parents still married. Through his schoolmates, Martin also learns the benefits of having divorced parents, like being constantly at the center of both attention and – most of all – both wallets. He grows tired of his boring life and finally makes a plan to have his parents splitting up.

Director Statement

In a world where everything seems to be going in reverse, normality becomes a problem. Having a strong family with good values is no longer seen as an added value but as a hardship.
We want to tell a contemporary story, prompting viewers to wonder what is the boundary between what is normal and what is not. And we use the fresh, immediate language of comedy. Sometimes the best way to have people thinking is through a bittersweet laughter.
