The setting: a kitchen – the surface of the kitchen table. Lisa has just moved in with her father and it appears as though they have not seen each other for a long time. During their first meals together, they try to get to know each other better. Conversations that never go beyond small talk shape this portrayal of the first steps in a father-daughter relationship. How does a daughter react to the fatherly authority of somebody she hardly knows? How does a father come to terms with his role towards a young woman?

«’Tell me something.’ is not only a precise study about a communication limited to rituals, but also about self-imposed roles within family structures.»
