The Kelly family once enjoyed an affluent lifestyle but has recently fallen on hard times. Despite this reality, they continue to maintain an air of aristocracy about them. They go so far as to lie to their neighbors about their vacation plans, telling them they’ll be spending their summer in Brazil. However, when obligated to follow through with their lie, they find themselves creating a fictionalized vacation that causes more trouble than they bargained for. This entertaining romp from Chile will have you wanting more of this epically terrible family.
