It takes a very special occasion to get this family all in the same room. This time it is nothing less but the family patriarch Horst – or the urn with his ashes to be precise. The ashes have to put into another location but the discussion about the where and how turns into an ugly family feud. The feud turns physical and the urn ends up on the floor and pops open. To the surprise of anybody there are no ashes inside. Which begs the question –where on earth is Horst? Soon afterwards Horst walks into the room as if nothing had happened. Subsequently he spends a visit with each of the family members – one after the other he honors with this presence, looking for a place to move in. Where has he been while everybody in the family believed him to be dead? What secrets does he keep? And who is he going to live with now? Once again the family council meets. Everybody has an idea what best to do and the speculations grow rampant.
