Synopsis

When it’s harvest time, Sunday’s a workday as well. The barn has to be swept clean, and if the cow refuses to nurse her calf, it will have to be fed by hand. Marko has just started to work on a larger farm in the Nuthe-Urstrom Valley, 60 kilometers south of Berlin. If he passes his exams, he will be able to call himself a farmer. Whether he actually wants that or not, he hasn’t quite decided yet. Beyond work, he doesn’t have many friends; the 11 other trainees think he’s somewhat of a loner. However, when Jacob, a new intern, shows up at the farm, Marko begins to slowly shed his outsider role. During the harvest while transporting the grain and re-locating the calves, the two young men get to know each other better. For one day, they take off for Berlin and after that, nothing is quite the same. A love story starts to unfold—but neither of them has actually considered just how open they want to live in the world.
