A hot summer day, a family, a game - what could possibly go wrong?

"Tabu" tells in 3 refreshing minutes what some people may need half their lives for: the inadequacy of interpersonal communication, bundled in the dramaturgy of a board game. An initially harmless parlor game, the aim of which is to rewrite words as quickly as possible, turns out to be a concentrated family drama in which the unsaid becomes an increasingly large mental cinema. Who is playing with whom, who understands what?
A power imbalance placed in the alleged allotment garden idyll of the average family - cards on the table!
