Homeful Bliss (Het Geluk)

  • Year : 2015

One evening, Frank (38) arrives at his quiet residential house. His family surprises him for his birthday. Everybody is present: his wife, two children, brother, sister in law, his father and even the babysitter. We witness all the typical birthdayscenes: they drink a toast to Frank, eat his favourite dish and end the party with a real birthdaycake.

During the evening though, there are some indications that things aren’t really what they seem to be at first sight.
