Death, birth, falling in and out of love, resentment over forgotten slights and indestructible affection - it's all relative.

Relativity is a witty and loving portrait of family life, with affectionate observation of inter generational misunderstanding, sibling sparring and the ties that bind, that will resonate with anyone who has ever argued with their dad about how to pronounce crisp brand names.
