The Hansen’s gather at the family-owned country guest house to celebrate their father, Helge’s 60th birthday. In the wake of their sibling, Linda’s recent suicide, this celebration (‘festen’ in Danish) sees them determined to return to the good old days and be a happy family once again. But the birthday speeches reveal far more than anyone had bargained for. FESTEN is a roller-coaster ride into the heart of a taboo that might make you laugh at things you shouldn’t!
