32 year-old Ditte is far from perfect. She is the irresponsible eternal teenager – unlike her older sister Sigrid, who is a mature mother of three. So when their father leaves their mother, Lise, after 38 years of marriage, Lise confides in Sigrid, leaving Ditte completely out of the loop when she – with a massive hangover – turns up late at the airport for Lise’s 60th birthday celebration trip to Malta. The three women check in to a colourful and family-friendly resort with a pool bar, free buffet and entertainment program.
Feeling more left out than ever, Ditte decides to prove that she is indeed a good daughter and not as hopeless as her mother and sister believe her to be. Unfortunately, all her efforts are in vain.
The holiday turns into a family love triangle with the sisters competing for their devastated mother’s love and attention, which gets even more complicated, when Ditte hires the disco-dancing bartender, Antonio, for one night to flirt with Lise to cheer her up, leading even more unexpected heartbreak.
