Nete is a tough woman of 35 who runs her job, husband, and teenage daughter with a firm and efficient hand. Her father suddenly becomes ill. Seriously ill. Nete forces a doctor to tell her how much time he has left. 3 weeks, hardly any longer. Nete's father becomes bitter and introvert, but Nete insists that he come to live with her and her family the few weeks he has left. "You should die with your family." Nete's father moves in and puts even more strain on Nete's family and everyday life. They all try to cope with the situation - he has only three weeks left, and you don't argue with a dying man. Three weeks pass by. A month. Nete's father does not die, his appetite comes back, the doctors begin to have doubts as to the prognosis, and Nete has a problem. Space is limited in every possible way. Nete's husband seeks comfort outside of their home, her daughter begins to rebel, and as the relationship between Nete and her father has not been too good for years, things are bound to explode. And they do. Nete's marriage begins to unravel, her father gets worse again and is admitted to hospital, where death comes after all. He dies alone at the hospital, and apparently everything Nete planned went wrong. But in the middle of all the misery a new Nete emerges. As a woman who can let go of her need to be in control. A woman who is again able to reach out for love. A woman who again is able to let love into her heart.
A bittersweet comedy with dogma star Paprika Steen in the strong leading role.
