Because Els has only a few months more to live, Jan invites the two children, Bibi (40) and Nico (38) with their partners to a short holiday in a chalet in Tirol. A last happy family gathering. But soon slumbering old disagreements, going back to early childhood, are raked up. The atmosphere becomes vindictive, as the members of the family come face to face with the unvarnished truth, and the chalet rapidly turns into a slaughterhouse
