Gently-paced family road trip as divorced parents drive from Brussels to the Alps to collect their son following a skiing accident. A series of mundane incidents and interactions provide windows into the personalities of the characters - particularly the dreamy, accident-prone mother and the macho, slightly boorish but generally endearing father.
The warm human interactions are contrasted by repeated scenes of empty spaces, snowfields, mountains, lakes, farmland and views of architecture that generally dwarfs the humans moving through it (freeway overpasses, highways snaking up mountainsides, the brutalist architecture of the ski resort). Like many road trips, nothing really ever happens, but the journey is a pleasant one.
