A child's voice comment is quoting Thoureau many times and it's pretty obvious what it is about: Civilization criticism with the villa area in a Swedish small town as the target. But of course it's supposed to be directed towards all the societies we've created, with their inhuman demands.
And it's rather clever done. You meet the young man with the little son, who doesn't have his own key to his parents' house. You meet another young man, who under the surface seems to be terrorized by his father, to live up to the conditions in the surroundings. And you meet this little boy, who kindly refuses to be the way his mother wants.
They are surrounded by the freedom in the woods, but the conclusions we're supposed to make are a little too easy. But of course credit goes to the slow tempo, which is really daring.
