Albert helps his dominant mother and father at a mountain farm veiled in chilling cold most of the year. He is over thirty and realizes that he is supposed to take over the farm one day. However, his mother directs him to the valley where she finds him a job. Albert meets his first love, but his new life is suddenly disrupted by a family tragedy. Emanating the atmosphere of Béla Tarr's pictures, Ronny Trocker´s debut psychological drama premiered at the Venice IFF.
