My Happy Complicated Family
This short, funny youth documentary revolves around three young girls of different age. They all have one thing in common: an exceptional family construction. And, naturally, an extended family comes with its own challenges… The girls introduce their families, and share their admiration and feelings with their parents for the first time.
