The daughter of a Jewish couple who survived the Holocaust is soon to marry a doctor, which is an occasion for celebrating. Thus, the girl's parents have decided to have a prenuptial feast at their country estate. Among the invited guests is a woman who fostered their child during the Nazi era. Instead of being grateful, the girl's mother is mostly jealous. Despite the fact that this is a celebration, memories of the past threaten to overpower the proceedings. This affectionately told story is based on the Dutch stage play Leedvermaak by Judith Herzberg).
