    • Synopsis
    • is a tragicomedy about the Van End family. Evert (48), Etty (46), Erwin
      (20), Manuel (16) and Eva (15) are a perfectly normal family, who over the years have developed a slightly
      dysfunctional way of relating to one another.
      Then, all of a sudden, the incarnation of perfection enters their lives, embodied by German exchange student
      Veit (17). With his arrival, doubt, insecurity, fear and desire invade the Van End family. How have they been able to
      function all these years, with all of their imperfections?
      During the course of Veit’s stay, all five family members start to reinvent themselves, as they feel increasingly
      alienated from themselves and from each other. It turns out, however, that it’s not perfection that brings
      happiness, but their blood ties. And besides, nobody’s really perfect…
