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.
