Storyline

Alice and Niklas are happy, they lack nothing - but a child. After several failed invitros, they go on a holiday to Sardinia to leave their wish for a child behind. Right there, however, everything they tried to repress resurfaces. A cheerful Tyrolean family moves directly into the neighboring house and seems to have everything that Alice and Niklas lack in life. An unforeseen incident changes their view on life, in which the most natural thing in the world does not avail.

How to waste time..
14 November 2020 | by Miss_XraySee all my reviews

30 minutes in and so far nothing unexpected has happend. "an unexpecting turn" it is called but in swedish. What kind of crap is this... ? Like another review... I agree... My isolation and whatever holliday is more exciting than this.. Sadly. I know I don´t want kids.. but this made me want them even less.. And not sure that is the point. Netflix is getting better and better at collecting pointless films. they need to lower the fee....
