Simi, who is overweight, spends her Easter holidays in the countryside with her aunt Claudia, a prominent nutritionist. While the fifteen-year-old still hopes to lose weight through the prescribed diet, strange things are going on between the members of the family. Peter Hengl’s feature film debut FAMILY DINNER is both an oppressive homeland horror film and family drama, which subtly plays with the viewer’s perception and uses pre-Easter customs as the perfect setting for a merciless finale.
