Something like family (Sowas wie Familie)

Our Dream of Canada: 15.01.2016 | 8:15 pm | ARD

As joint owners of an idyllic holiday lodge in Vancouver Bay, retired German engineer Adrian, his granddaughter Karen and cook Iris must find a way to work together, but above all they need to find a way to live together - are they ready for it? With his grim nature, Richard does not make the perfect host and, as their first guests arrive, Karen is already making plans for their exit. Gesa (Marlene Morreis) and Jasper (Siegfried Terpoorten) are hoping this trip will mark a new start for their family, and help them and their children commit to a life together. Lina (Annelena Klenke), Jasper’s fourteen-year-old daughter, finds Mats (Nico Hartung), Gesa’s twelve-year-old son, just plain embarrassing and Mats suffers due to the fact that, after the divorce of his parents, all contact with his father Sven (Sönke Möhring) has ceased. When Mats disappears, with all evidence suggesting he has been abducted, the family, as well as the three lodge owners, will all be put to the test.
