For a six-year-old boy, his father's farm represents one big unknown - as does his dad. Their relationship has suffered since the divorce and neither of them knows how to find his way to the other. The father tries to introduce the boy to his world and involves him in work around the farm, but there's a tough lesson in store: They have to put down a horse that can't be treated. In his graduate film Dalía Icelandic director Brúsi Ólason draws on his own childhood memories, recasting them into a gentle reflection on the nature of masculinity, which might seem abrasive, but only until it encounters the fragile world of children.
