Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
The Quebecois screenplay of this Canadian film went through a long process before being filmed; written in Czechoslovakian, it was translated from Czech into English, English into French and from standard French into Quebecois. The story concerns a father and son living on a farm which has been passed on from father to son for many generations. The boy has no interest in keeping the farm, preferring to sell it to some Americans as a hunting club. The father would rather burn the place down.
