Feiertage

A Film by Christin Freitag
and Hanna Mayser

Synopsis

Helga and Kurt. We are amidst family, and a special one indeed. Before Christmas Eve, the two grandparents prepare for their family to come and visit them, and they do so in a very unique way. As the day comes closer, the arrangements become increasingly complicated. Small things turn into great ordeals. Decorating the Christmas tree can be one of the biggest challenges you may ever encounter. At its core, this is a kind and warmhearted portrayal of two marvelous people and the amazing strength of character of the old age, with a very humorous touch.
