Synopsis: A fallen tree interrupts not really quiet family trip to their relatives. The father is fully obsessed with his work, the mother tries to control everyone, the daughter looks very pale and the son is the only person full of energy and curiosity. A strange woman appears from nowhere and asks to drive her home. That results in a phantasmagoric trip with old woman, while wild animals are watching the people. Their son's loss suddenly uncovers pain points of the family and reveals true nature of the people who don't need to hide their impatience, petulancy, intolerance... But under such extreme conditions. the family gets the chance to take a fresh look of themselves and each other.
