    • Synopsis
    • Ivar, Mitja and Torsti, 3 half brothers – all with different mothers – come together for the first time in many years to celebrate their father’s 70th birthday. In a hysterical and often funny outpour the past comes bubbling to the surface. Deep down the brothers all feel like they have failed in life – and all of the bad, they believe, rests firmly on the shoulders of their philandering and neglectful father.
