Family Business (0+)

Germany, 2015, colour, 93 min.
Director: Christiane Büchner
Family Business shows how an intimate bond is being woven amidst strangers. A German and a Polish family get together to solve substantial problems. Jowita travels to Germany to care for 88-year old Anne and take the pressure of her working daughters. How does it feel to take a place in another family whilst leaving your own place behind? How can you learn to live with a stranger whilst your own benchmarks gradually disappear? The pragmatic decision, thought to benefit both sides, creates unexpected relationships.
