Trailer & Highlights


Programme Overview

The Boomerang Effect: Adults Moving Back in with their Parents.

Karine and Patrick, a loving, debt-ridden couple, has lost their dream of having their own restaurant, forcing them to swallow their pride and accept to sleep in Karine’s parents’ basement until they are on their feet again.“ But we’ll be out of here soon!” they optimistically declare …Yeah, sure they will……

Our heroes just can’t admit that their shortcomings may have contributed to the failure of their restaurant – because that would be a tragedy – if it weren’t a  situational comedy!

What if your charming daughter is in love with an affectionate yet slovenly guy, who has some issues with you, your very organized wife, and your other son-in-law -who is admittedly an asshole – but at least he’s rich and not living with you! Now you’re back to parenting instead of enjoying retirement.

Boomerang is a romantic comedy based on an increasingly prevalent phenomenon everywhere in the world, as adults move back in with their parents, either to help them in their golden years, to offset financial stress or because of one of life’s setbacks.
