Koen attends a family reunion and nearly overdoses on ham and milk. Amateur photographer Stefaan takes an awkward trip down memory lane. Kjell travels back in time in an attempt to raise his self-esteem. Karel is abducted by aliens and comes back as a mutant. Jef's paranoia gets in the way when he tries to impress his new in-laws. 

“An outstanding original debut” – De Filmkrant

Quality Time consists of five short stories about young men who struggle through life. Rigorous shifts in tone and style are used to reflect the absurdity of human existence.
