[Everybody in our Family]
Marius is a divorced man in his late thirties. His ex-wife Otilia has remarried, and their five-year-old daughter Sofia lives with her mother. When Marius wants to pick her up for a short holiday at the beach, a discussion arises: is Sofia too ill to go? The incident becomes the catalyst for a violent and emotional outburst, to which each family member contributes. The film gives a poignant insight into a messy divorce, but also offers humor and absurdism.
