Henrik’s ass is in a tight corner. His girlfriend has split, drug and alcohol abuse have gotten the
upper hand, and he’s deeply in debt. When everything is most dire and his woes seem wholly insurmountable, a door to new life is
opened when Henrik’s wealthy grandfather dies, leaving behind him a huge fortune. But at the
promise of money, family war breaks out, and years of failure and betrayal are revealed.
Sometimes reality surpasses even the most incredible cock-and-bull stories. And Christian Sønderby Jepsen's tragicomic and warm film about three brothers who inherit a fortune from their grandfather is certainly stranger than fiction. Even in Hollywood, nobody would believe the story… A film which proves that blood is thicker than water, and that true happiness cannot be bought with money.
