The sudden visit of an old fisherman’s son and daughter-in-law thrusts him into the midst of an existential drama; they present him with an ultimatum, asking him for a swift decision that entirely changesthe mood of this family reunion. The old man, who is celebrating the first family gathering in seven years with a seafood lunch, has a dilemma: whether to make the right decision and resist his son’s demands to sign over the house, or whether to allow parental love to prevail. Or is his disappointment so great that he no longer cares? Left alone with the uneaten meal, and a promise from his son and daughter-in-law to return for another visit, the film raises questions about family relationships and the values of modern society.
