German (Eng sub)
A seemingly happy family crumbles under the weight of keeping up appearances: The mother – a young, attractive, social climber – is overburdened. The father – eloquent, a good provider and soulmate – withdraws into himself when he is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The child – author and director of the film – starts to exhibit “problematic” behavior early on. She is the one in the family who exhibits symptoms of the family’s dysfunction. The memories about this girl tell of emotional abuse and childhood isolation while looking toward an unwritten future.
