Long Synopsis
Lars (9) is naïve and innocent, all he wants is for his father to be happy and his family to be together. Lars' mother is gone and life is empty and dysfunctional without her. Today is his dad's birthday. Lars bakes a cake and sings birthday songs, but in the evening his dad, Peter, sits up late drinking alone, lost in the memories of his wife. In his loneliness Peter ends up going next door to confess his feelings of desire to the next-door neighbour, Alma. He of course is quickly rejected and a twist of fate finds Lars in the back yard seeing the argument that ensues. After his rejection Peter storms home and, caught up in drunken despair, masturbates violently behind the house. Of course Lars is witness to it all. Not understanding what is going on, and full of shock and worry, Lars calls out to his father, who in return yells at him, and tells him to get away. The next day, no one in the house wants to talk. Now Lars is really alone, struggling to understand the new and vastly more complicated and absurd adult world that he has just found himself in the midst of, he has to figure everything out by himself
