20 Lies, 4 Parents and a Little Egg

A film about lively adolescents, infantile parents and complete incompetence.

The lives of Sjors and Bert are turned upside down when 15-year old adolescent Dylan, who turns out to be Sjors’s son, suddenly turns up on their doorstep. Dylan was thrown out by his mother and her girlfriend. A film about spirited teenagers and immature parents and their shortcomings.
