Father of Four - on the sunny side!

Martin Miehe-Renard, Denmark, 2018

90 min.DK/FeatureFamily films

The family has left for a vacation in sunny Gran Canaria, to enjoy a week of peace, quiet, relaxation and family life. The kids and Uncle Anders want to participate in the hotels' competition to become "The Sunny Family of The Year". But Father says no, underlining that "We’re good enough as we are!" He changes his mind, though, when he meets the competing family and recognises the father as his old schoolmate who bullied at school for being physically inadequate. Consequently Father enters the competition with all his might and heart, and what should have been a friendly contest ends up being a fight for honor and redemption, and it’s only by the loving and innovative intervention from the kids that Father realises that the family really doesn’t need to go to any of such extremes. They are actually good enough as they are.
