In the first part of the brand new ORF program “Stadtkomödie”, a white lie seems better than the truth. Or at least according to Hubert, a well-situated television host and good family father who wants to spare his mother the details of his separation from his wife, her pregnancy, and his new girlfriend. At a birthday party for his mother, who suffers a heart condition, the whole crowd gathers and the confusion begins. Kreutzer’s turbulent comedy of errors casts an entertaining glance at the entirely normal patchwork family madness.
