Summary You can't choose your family, which is why Conrad limits his visits with his parents to an absolute minimum. His father, Carl, is an irritable old coot who enjoys plucking apart Conrad's son, Jonas, and his wife, Tamara. Preferring to leave nothing to chance, Jonas proceeds pragmatically: the code word "strawberry pie" means time to go. At this year's birthday massacre, Conrad's mother Helene surprises them with genuine news: she has left Carl and asks Conrad to do her a favour. She wants him to pay a visit to Carl in their family home. It sounds harmless enough - until Conrad finds his father wallowing in beer cans, pizza cartons and self-pity. Yet the old geezer still finds the energy to launch venomous attacks on his son. When Carl injures himself seriously in a fall, Conrad has no choice but to move back into his old childhood room. Three generations under one roof, a chance for reconciliation - or a total disaster?
