A large family is going to the mountain for their christmas vacation, in a rented cabin. Problems occur on Christmas Eve when the father gets drunk and his alcohol problem comes to show. We get to learn a lot about the family's background, and secrets are revealed. If you look behind the curtain, they've got a whole other story to tell than what it looks from the outside. Written by

A better destruction of the whole western "ideal Christian family" is never seen.
Watching this movie was like a living nightmare, where I finally understood that the horror of all horror movies are the family dramas- The film manages to describe the Christmas act all of us put onvso well, there will never be any excuse any more for not being a nice human being for Christmas. The actors are brilliant, the dialogue engraves in your hearth since you recognize all the lines more or less from your own family life, and the story so universal in idepicting how destructively lojal children are to parents and traditions, your hearth bleed. In the end, when the victimised children finally gets back at their immature, emotionally dyslectic parents and leave them behind to clean up their own mess you want to run up and hug them all. This film is so authentic and full of will to make a change, it changed my entire life and made me understand the value of fighting bad family forever. Thank you!!!
