An entertaining Christmas-themed sequel to the 2019 Festival hit 10 Days Without Mamma, the misadventures of the Rovelli family are back in When Mum is Away...with the Family.

Carlo (Fabio De Luigi) and Giulia (Valentina Lodovini) are grappling with the division of their respective tasks within the family. Since Giulia has started working again, it is Carlo who takes care of the children and the household chores. Just as he decides to look for a job, Giulia reveals that she is up for a promotion that involves a move to Sweden. As if that weren’t enough, she will have to take the interview on Christmas Eve in Stockholm.

What should they do? Carlo comes up with a brilliant idea... Bring out the old campervan and drag the family on an adventurous journey to the North to spend Christmas together. But this road trip will not go as planned, as unexpected events along the way and a hilarious encounter with a self-styled Santa Claus (Diego Abatantuono) make the trip unforgettable.
