20 Lies, 4 Parents and a Little Egg / 20 leugens, 4 ouders en een scharrelei

Families Out of Competition

The 15 year-old Dylan was always told by his two mothers that he began his life as “a little egg.” And Dylan begins to discover  - in this Dutch comedy of causes and effect and the consequences of parenthood -  that this had not been the only lie in the story of his conception. Dylan is at a point where he would prefer to have no interference from any parent, so he could devote himself to his band and maybe one ginger band member. But it is now, that in addition to his mothers, he has to go live with his bohemian “donor / Dad” - whose partner didn’t even know of Dylan’s existence. In a cascade, lies and secrets of past and present are revealed, concerning both the sets of mothers and fathers. Chaos rules and everyone is looking for a way out and to stabilize the whole modern family of four parents and one teenager.
