Family Reunion

New York artist Katrin struggles to come out to her relatives back in Iceland, but revelations at a family reunion challenge all her assumptions.

Synopsis

Family Reunion is a modern-day coming out story about a young Icelandic woman living two separate lives. In Family Reunion Katrín, a sculptor in NYC is headed from grungy Chinatown back to pristine Iceland for her grandfather's 70th birthday.

Katrín's family members in Iceland are beside themselves with excitement over the daughter's expected return, not to mention the arrival of the highly popular American goods they've requested. Katrín will soon find herself reunited with her family who enthusiastically engage her in discussions about marriage, children and her future. Katrín must decide whether to continue leading her dual life or risk outraging her family by revealing her true self. Little does she know that her family is about to reveal a secret of its own.
