This intriguing drama by Agust Gudmundsson is a perceptive portrayal of a father-son relationship in all its multiple dimensions. The father has been a farmer throughout his long life, and although the son works on the farm, as he grows older his desire for change grows stronger. After the father dies, a part of the past dies with him. Yet the son stays on the farm with his fellow workers for awhile longer, torn between an inner drive to go live in the city and loyalty to his heritage.
