A documentary that depicts the effects of a family law.

Francesco marries Elena. After the birth of the second child, the relationship between Elena and Francesco enters in a grey area. Francesco, after yet another quarrel with Elena, decides to visit Carlo, who hasn't seen and heard for many years.
A close, often animated dialogue arises between Carlo and Francesco, during which the two protagonists confront each other on the theme of the family and the separation of the couple. The custody of the children, the "family home", the "centre of affections", the "right of visit", the widespread poverty of separate fathers, are laid bare in a path that pushes Francesco to take on greater awareness of the reality of post-separation.
Family and then underlines the different opinions that could emerge within the couple on the use of corporal punishment of children as an educational key. In the 2003-2013 report by “Telefono Azzurro”, the extract of which is part of the documentary, data are illustrated of how child abuse is mostly perpetrated in the family and how the prejudice that considers the father the subject to be dispelled which exerts more violence on children.
