Karl Preston lives a comfortable life with his wife and daughter, in an affluent suburb. But preparing for a weekend visit to his elderly parents' Florida home, Karl becomes increasingly aware of the pressing concerns of their faltering lives - realising too it will be the first time in years he has seen his gay brother Sven. Frank, Karl's father, is bellicose and bewildered, Annike, his mother, is increasingly isolated, despite her fluency in three languages, and Sven, harried, loving and hopeful, finds his life restricted by his parents' needs.
