FEATURE, URUGUAY, 2012, DIR. GABRIEL DRAK, 81 MIN, SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
Jorge and Elena have been married for more than 35 years and have much to be grateful for – they have four grown children and a lifetime of wonderful family memories. Jorge has recently retired and he and Elena have made some life-changing plans for the future. It is time, they decide, to bring the family together to share their important news. This occasion, like many other family celebrations, will take place over a BBQ lunch on their beautiful property not far from the sea. The peaceful Sunday morning is punctuated by the arrivals of the guests. As time and toasts wear on, family secrets begin to unfurl and soon much, too much, has been revealed. Can the family cope with one more surprise?
