A dark and absurd road-movie comedy in which the grandmother fulfills a dream, the mother stops treating her daughters like kids, the daughters stop treating their husbands like idiots, and the father's ashes get spread all over the country. It's almost six months since he died and his ashes are still in grandma's cupboard. Everyone in the family seems to have grieved enough and each has his or her own new problems.

Lovely film about interpersonal relations and family
I watched the film years ago at Bursa Festival. It is a lovely film. It has a very interesting and entertaining story. The actors are very good.
Here is the story: A family travels Czech Republic and Slovakia in order to bury the cremated remains of their grand-father since the grand-mother tells that this was his last request. Three generations (grand-mother, daughters, son-in-laws, grandchildren, a stuffed rabbit) travels in two automobiles. It begins as a boring travel...There are generation gaps, personnel problems and quarrels between all family members and nobody except the grand-mother is willing to make this trip. Hoewever, the 2 days they spend together turns to be the most unforgettable days of their lives...
