Kris lives with her partly disabled uncle in rural Denmark and together they run a derelict farm. In their quirky yet loving relationship, built upon daily routines, words aren't necessary. Kris is the dominant workhorse and she has taken on a motherly and overprotecting role towards her uncle. When Kris saves a calf under a complicated birth, her interest in the veterinary field is reawakened. She develops a friendship with the chatty veterinarian Johannes and slowly experiences life outside the farm. As love crosses her path, a possible life-changing question emerges.Written by

The first dialogue in the movie is heard after 5 minutes, when the uncle says "Nutella", pointing out that his favorite spread is missing from the breakfast table. See more »
The bitter poetry of story is the main virtue of this minimalist film about love, vocation, Iutland , rural life and help, about price of freedom and duty. The acting is admirable, the atmosphere reminding the delicate embroideries , the slow action a great good point and the fine simplicity one of motifs for admire it . Short, a special film.
