The Price of Family
After 25 years, the perfect family parts… The children fly from the nest to move to the city, leaving their parents, Carlo and Anna, finally alone. Within a few months they disappear and, caught up in their new life, limit their contacts with their parents to a few brief calls. They don’t show up at the funerals of old relatives, they don’t show up for any more birthdays, and as a last straw, they won’t spend Christmas together with their family to travel elsewhere. Angry and desperate, Carlo and Anna hence decide to lie by pretending that they have inherited 6 million euros from an old aunt. Driven by the hope of getting their slice to fulfill their dreams and changing their frustrating working lives, the children magically show up again, even assuring that they will not miss Christmas with their family. How long can this last and what consequences will Carlo and Anna’s lie have? Will they be able to celebrate Christmas with their children? At what cost?
