Stealing Beauty

A boy comes home from school with a note indicating he was caught stealing money from his peer. His family tries to educate him about the meaning and border lines separating private property from its “other”. The sit-com family is played by a real family, shoot in different IKEA stores without permission “being caught”, than, disturbs the movie’s smooth continuity, but engenders more and more kitchens or living-rooms, to take part in one scene, as a visual catalog of ideal living spaces.
