To escape mounting tensions at the advertising agency they co-own, French-German couple Nina and Jan whisk their kids, Max and Emma, away to their seaside vacation home. The couple has signed a new politically charged client, forcing them to confront their clashing priorities. What's meant to be an idyllic off-season retreat turns sinister when burglars tear through the house, unseen by anyone except Nina. Though at first the aftermath brings the family closer, it's short-lived. As the police investigate and the evidence doesn't add up, the account of what took place begins to unravel alongside the couple's faith in each other. Peeling back layers of truth and perception, director Ronny Trocker drops us inside the remains of a middle-class family as it begins to rot from within. Featuring phenomenal performances, Human Factors reminds us that even the closest family members may be only intimate strangers.—Sundance Film Festival
