Synopsis:

Etty, her husband Evert and their children Erwin, Manuel and Eva are a perfectly normal family, who have developed a slightly dysfunctional way of relating to one another. When the incarnation of perfection enters their lives, embodied by the German exchange student Veit, doubt, insecurity, fear and desire invade the Van End family. During the two weeks of Veit’s stay, all five family members start to reinvent themselves, as they feel increasingly alienated from themselves and from each other. But in the end, it’s not perfection they are looking for...
