Plot Summary

In Hungary, the proportion of farmers under the age of thirty-five is eight and a half percent, and the thirty percent of those applying for area-aid is over sixty years. For young people in the countryside, agriculture and farming are no longer a charm. One can hear more and more about the programs that are being launched with the aim of promoting and introducing young people to rural life and farming. Such is the Rural Adventure program, in which young people spend a week with a rural farmer and do agricultural work there. But what if a metropolitan young person decides to become a farmer as a result? Does he or she have a chance to create a functioning farm? The film is trying to find an answer to this, it introduces young couples who have exchanged their managerial pace to this impossible mission. People who chose the peace of the countryside over urban congestion despite not having any peasant tradition in their family before. But the film also takes a look at the other side of the coin. What about the aging peasant who is connected to rural life through his family? How does he see the centuries-old challenges of peasant life, and what keeps him close to the acre? How does he see the first steps of the urban brats? These parallel worlds show an interesting contrast, and at the end of the film, everyone can decide if He or She would move to the countryside for farming. Written by Balázs Harangozó
