Hanne and Carsten are desperately trying to keep up with the illusion of a happy family life to their nosy neighbors. They used to be just like everyone else in suburbia, but the financial crisis hit the family hard. But how do you keep up with the illusion of a happy life in times of crisis?

Jannik Dahl Pedersen is a Danish short film director. He just graduated from the Danish alternative film school 18FRAMES and is studying Film Science at the University of Copenhagen. Working on his extensive filmography, it has always been the comedy that has attracted Jannik, and he has both sketches and more creative satires on his resume. To Jannik, comedy isn’t about a certain amount of laughs per minute, but more about happiness, surprise and catharsis.
