Synopsis Ferien, holidays in German, the ideal moment to visit the family’s country home. The eldest daughter pays a visit to where her elderly parents and their adolescent child usually live, together with her husband and children, her middle sister —a singer—, and their grandmother. One can imagine the merry-making and noise of the family gathered together but, in this family, festivities provoke tensions that make the small family dramas withheld for the whole year go out into the open. An infidelity, a disenchantment, a sickness, a life-long choice that turns out to be incorrect, small changes on the surface, but changes that leave deep marks in the spirit. Ferien is a depiction of the break from work and daily life routines, but not necessarily holidays from oneself and from emotions, which seem more active than ever at this time of the year
