Festen satirises the hypocrisy of a large and wealthy family by observing the events that unfold at the ancestral home during a reunion held to celebrate the oldest family member’s 60th birthday. A father accused of abusing his children by his own son… Festen traces the family’s turbulent battle with the truth.
