Anna lives with her husband, their two young sons and Simon - a child who has been placed with them by the Youth Welfare Office since he was 18 months old and is now six years old. One day Simon's father declares that he wants custody of his son back. It is heartbreaking, but Anna knows she must help Simon to live with his loving father again.
For director Fabien Gorgaert, this film is "a lot about love, but that love will spill over everywhere, even beyond the frame". THE FAMILY is an impressive melodrama that is often very funny and always subtle and is carried by the wonderful cast.

Age rating: from 12 years
