Christine (Christiane Paul) and Konrad (Charly Hübner) are a modern family. He stays home, looks after the kids and the housework, while she earns the money as a senior doctor in waiting. But when a second chance beckons and Konrad receives an attractive offer to direct a play, their family life is turned upside down. The Argentinian au pair proves to be a complete failure, and while rebellious daughter Käthe is down on everything, Emma longs desperately for a replacement for her dead hamster Specky.

Konrad finds the switch from full-time dad to leading director harder than expected and between surgery at the hospital and cooking dinner at home, Christine is at the end of her tether. But it’s only when Konrad heads for the hills that it becomes clear to everyone that something has got to change…

Authentic, delicate and funny, PARENTS reflects the turbulent everyday life of a modern urban family with all the ups and downs of family relationships.
