A Friend of the Family: Plot and Cast

The depiction of an incident from the 70s, the tale is a true one that revolves around a trusting, loving, and educated family, the Brobergs, and their apparently family “friend”, Robert Berchtold. Robert has been a friend of Mr. Broberg, a devoted man who is charismatic and well, obsessed with his friend’s family. The plot of the miniseries highlights how an individual close to a family can take advantage of their vulnerabilities using sophisticated tactics and the foundation of trust and friendship to put family members up against each other psychologically, to turn their own daughter against her own family. How the lives of the Brobergs changed permanently and drastically, and how did they survive the situation, is what the story is about.
