Saturday, December 1, 2012, 7:00 pm When Marko and his relatives gather for a family get-together, matriarch Gitte announces that she has quit taking her bipolar disorder medication in favour of a homeopathic treatment that has given her renewed energy. Her announcement effectively disrupts the delicate balance connecting the upper-middle class family. This sophisticated family drama assesses how the actions of each family member reflect their own need for self-preservation. Hans-Christian Schmid creates a restrained, sensitive dramatic exploration of the complexities those familial ties that bind.
