A relational drama about expectations, wounded feelings and a life-work that has fallen intact
The old farmer Mikael is lost in existence. His son Jon has been away for many years because of his edge-related relationship with the father. When the play begins, they meet again. Sara, who came to know Mikael at the local cafe, appeared on the farm. She is involved in the deal between father and son, and we can follow the emotional battle around the farm, the future, the father's aging and the son's many years of absence.
