    • Synopsis
    • Winnie (12) and Sim (12) meet when their parents fall in love. They quickly form a ‘patchwork family’. Sim is pretty used to this already as his father, Rik has been through two marriages already. Sim and Winnie get on really well together and are looking forward to the upcoming wedding between their parents. But when irritations and bickering start to take over between Rik and Tosca, Sim and Winnie’s faith in a new happy family takes it’s first knock. They decide to help their parents out by making an ‘instruction video’ for them with useful relationship tips’. Sim and Winnie become even closer. How difficult can it be to just be happy with one another?
