Plot synopsis
Dramatic parable.
A husband, wife and two children (a boy and a girl) arrive from an industrial town to the countryside, to the husband’s birthplace, to stay in his father’s old house «Just like any other film, in one way or another, this film is about all of us — kind, beautiful people in the tragic circumstances of hopelessness».
