PLOT SUMMARY

Sorin comes at his former wife to spend the Christmas with their son. Under the pressure of the past conflicts, Sorin locks himself in the bathroom. Things get out of control when family members come to see what’s happening.

Caught between four walls, Sorin refuses to attend the Christmas dinner, although his only purpose was to be with his child during this special time.

The reason behind all of this? He doesn’t want to get along with his ex-wife and her family. The acting and the funny replicas between characters drive authenticity, but the story is somehow absurd.
