Family

Family, "Mishpacha"

Synopsis

Director

In a perfect world, Lily would have grown up with a loving father, a caring mother, a sane sister and a brother who wasn’t madly in love with her… But you can’t always get what you want… and Lily finds herself in her living room, staring at four dead bodies.

She goes to her therapist after hours, to confess and make sense of this confusing day. But Lily’s therapist isn’t home. Her teenage, judgmental, insensitive daughter is. Lily finds herself once more, locked in a battle of wills for some serious adult attention.

„Family“ is the portrait of every family, if it’s being taken in the dark.

„There’s no way to deal with a broken home, but laugh about it or write it as bloody as possible. This film has been my vision for years, and I just would like to get it out of my system already. This film puts us on the side of a girl who must kill her family to be free. The only way this young photgrapher can finally get the family picture she’s been praying for, for years – is if she shoots them all dead first.“ – Veronica Kedar, director
