FAMILY opens with stories of hopes and dreams; from the stories mothers plant in their daughters’ heads through fairy tales, to the ideals set by religion and society on what the idea of a family should be. The first few scenes are a mad rush of nostalgic childhood memories, family portraits, and even a senamrobik scene set to lagu KELUARGA SIHAT, KELUARGA BAHAGIA.
FAMILY then shifts gears, to uncover cracks as reality sets in. An absent father, a mother longing for attention, a son feeling different from the rest…what happens when the FAMILY is not as perfect as it seems?
The final act sees the FAMILY trying to recover and salvage whatever was lost. The result? A single mother. Children from another mother. Survival.
This is the new FAMILY. The blended FAMILY. The FAMILY that is not like fairytales. These are their true stories. Their FAMILY, now.
