Break Bread Not Families

Break Bread Not Families – The Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy has set off a humanitarian crisis along the U.S./Mexico border, leaving 2,400 children unjustly separated from their parents. Protestors, including elected officials, influencers, and the Kennedy family, will fast for 24 hours, for 24 days, in honor of the 2,400 children separated from their parents.

67-year old Hana is the good soul of her family. Every week her sons come over with their wives and children for their family dinner. It is a family tradition not to be changed.Selfless, Hana takes care of the little Ivánek, who is not really cherishing his grandma’s help. She also supports her other son with money everytime he asks for it – and he asks a lot. A warmhearted yet modest person, Hana continues to live alone in the old family house without changing a thing ever since her husband died a few years ago. She might need a helping hand but both her sons are too busy and too selfish to see it.One day, while Hana is looking for Ivánek who sneaked out, she finds a man, Broňa, floating at the riverside, unable to move. She jumps in and helps him to get out of the icy water. Hana gets to know his elderly friends and suddenly she is included in a new social circle. Even little Ivánek is interested in the funny quirky group of ice swimmers.Light-hearted Broňa, who lives in an old camper bus near the river, inspires Hana’s lust for life. They become lovers, but when she introduces him to her sons, the whole family is shocked. In a series of events and dark secrets, Hana has to stand up and start changing her life.
