In a large, run-down house in the idyllic Austrian countryside, a once thriving commune is now home to only a few remaining members. When Hans, the charismatic former commune leader dies, family members are brought together once again. In writer-director Marie Kreutzer's

amazingly assured first film, Hans' four adult children, one of whom, Kyra, has not seen her siblings in 23 years, reunite for his funeral and thrash out their complicated and conflicting feelings about their childhoods, uncovering buried secrets. With novelistic richness, Kreutzer's drama examines the fallout from a failed utopian dream and the consequences of unbridled freedom.
