It’s the summer holidays, and 11-year-old Hana leaves no stone unturned to get her fighting parents to reunite, but without any luck. One day, she runs into two younger sisters living alone, and a friendship is formed. Hana soon takes on the role as «older-sister-almost-mother». Finally, she can cook and recreate the family dinner table she so dearly misses, and the surrogate family become her happy escape. The House of Us portrays how childhood, despite tragic circumstances, can appear almost magical from a child’s perspective.
