Adap­ta­tion of A.F.Th. van der Heijden’s epony­mous novel. Bitter­sweet family drama about an adoles­cent boy’s fasci­na­tion with his equally exciting and socially non-conformist aunt Tiny.
No woman as exciting, intriguing and different as aunt Tiny. Some­thing her 12-year-old nephew Albert is convinced of. Against the back­drop of the period from the 1960s up to the present, Albert grad­u­ally discovers why his aunt is such a remark­able woman, why she simply refuses to stay in line and which shocking events shaped her life. Bitter­sweet family drama based on A.F.Th. van der Heijden’s epony­mous novel.
