Is it the end or a new beginning?
A new take on the dramatised reality genre from leading German producers Filmpool – where life is stranger than fiction!
In Families at the Crossroads each episode focuses on a gripping story of self discovery, told through the eyes of our female hero. In the style of a documentary, Families at the Crossroads relates what happens when the closest, most important and most emotional bonds in our lives are suddenly torn apart – the family bond. Threatened by abuse, betrayal, secrets, illness – all topics viewers can relate to – we show how our hero deals with the life changing threats that come into a family or a relationship.
These stories are taken from true every-day events – such as those found in newspapers and are recreated in a dramatised form – in heightened reality that emphasises the emotional aspect of the incident and highlights the heroes and happy endings.
The specialised style of writing and production deliver heightened emotions and dramatic turning points; we are able to see the most private thoughts of the protagonists, and reach an emotional conclusion, surpassing the drama of docu-soap.
