The Vuillard family gathers: Junon and Abel, a daughter Elizabeth and her son Paul, Henri and a girlfriend, Ivan, his wife Sylvia and their young sons, and cousin Simon. Six years before, Elizabeth paid Henris debts and demanded he never see her again or visit their parents home. Paul, at 16, has mental problems and faces a clinical exam. Junon learns she needs a bone marrow transplant if shes to live beyond a few months: thus the dÃ©tente bringing all together. Two family members have compatible marrow, but the spats, fights, cruel words, drunken toasts, and somewhat civilized bad behavior threaten all; plus Junon may simply refuse treatment. Do we know ourselves?
