Synopsis


Mummy is afraid that Joa will not get married since she is so ugly, angry and depressed. That is why she gets in touch with a turkey, that has undergone extensive plastic surgery in order to become a human being. Her brother Harald has become a hare by accident and longs desperately for the woods but is kept locked in day and night. Soon there is a new addition to the family ? the rat Milli. Daddy protests but Mummy is stubborn: everyone has to love everyone! An absurd domestic tragedy about the agonising situation that arises when children suddenly have grown up and ought to move out.
