It Takes a Family

It Takes a Family

IT TAKES A FAMILY is a family drama about secrets and repressed memories. Susanne is the grandchild of Jewish Holocaust survivors and the daughter of a German mother and a Danish Jewish father. When Susanne is born, in the eyes of her grandparents she is a child of the enemy and a constant reminder of their tragic past. Years later, Susanne starts asking the difficult questions only to discover that the war never really ended in the tormented family. Somehow, the horrors of the past have always been present as a deafening yet unspoken trauma.
