In a perfect world, Lily would have grown up with a loving father, a caring mother, a sane sister, and a brother who wasn’t madly in love with her.… But you can’t always get what you want… and Lily finds herself in her living room, staring at four dead bodies.
Family is the perfect portrait of every family, if it’s taken in the dark.

The third feature film from writer/director/actress Veronica Kedar, Family is a dark psychological drama that follows a young woman, Lily, who goes to her therapist to confess to the crime of killing her family. Instead of meeting her therapist, she begins pouring forth her story to her daughter Talia (Baremboem), a young woman approximately the same age as Lily who suffers from her own host of problems.
