As his grandfather lies dying, thirty-something Henrik looks forward to receiving an inheritance from the successful family hotel business. And he really could use the money: Henrik and his eldest brother are both struggling with drug and alcohol problems; they are also completely broke, and Henrik's wife has left him. The inheritance will change everything, or so the pair believe. But getting his hands on the loot turns out to be much more complicated than Henrik thought. The Will is an absorbing and oddly entertaining film, impressively shot and edited and offering a fascinating insight into a family torn apart by money - proving that blood is thicker than water, and that true happiness cannot be bought with money.
