    • Synopsis
    • Do you remember the last time you talked to your parents? What did you talk about? Have you progressed beyond conversations about the weather or discussions of daily politics? Five years after the previous gathering, a birthday celebration brings together an ordinary four-member family. They start questioning what it was that made them turn away from each other... Can a conversation about buried family secrets help them to eat together without suffering from stomach cramps in future? Can a disastrously baked birthday cake help them to overcome the past?
      Through the ritual of a family meal, the film portrays
      our need for acceptance by our loved ones.
