The Family by Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen

A little boy finds out his parents are getting a divorce. So he refuses to leave the car to protest.

Director Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen tells a sad yet touching story about a family in the midst of divorce.

When a dad and daughter have a snowball fight, the son refuses to get out of the car. He’s staging a protest against his parents’ impending divorce.

The family begins to disintegrate. As the dad picks up the kids from school, he struggles to have a heart-to-heart conversation with them after a week apart.

But when a family crisis emerges, the parents come together, reminding their kids that despite all their differences, nothing — not even divorce — can break a family.
