Synopsis

THE FAMILY follows 14-year-old Matej over the course of ten years. After having to take care of his mentally challenged parents and his older brother, he spent an isolated youth among his peers. As he became a father himself at the age of 20, it seemed as if he was able to transcend life patterns and create a family on his own. However, his behavioural and personality patterns disturb the young family’s peace.
