This quirky and satirical comedy tells the story of the dysfunctional, middle class, Dutch, van End family, consisting of mom, dad, their two sons, and their very shy and introverted daughter, Eva. One night at dinner, Eva tries to tell them she is participating in a school project and will be bringing home a German exchange student, but she is ignored. When Veit (the student) arrives, the family is shocked and surprised, but they readily accept him into their home. As Veit interacts with each family member, all five begin to confront their self-doubts, insecurities, fears and desires. Trapped in the middle of all the upheaval, Eva looks for ways to reinvent herself that will spark a dramatic transformation from adolescence to adulthood.
