BY AGNETE FRIIS
Jakob is the midst of a bitter divorce, when he receives a phone call from the past. The caller is his uncle, whose farm Jakob used to work on as a young man. His uncle is asking him for help in the search for an old acquaintance: Ellen.
Jakob attempts – but ultimately fails – to ignore his uncle’s request. He resigns from his job and travels to East Jutland to the farm, he has not been to since one summer 41 years ago – the summer with Ellen.
Returning to the farm becomes a confrontation with a past Jakob has willfully tried to suppress. A past, which has affected his whole life, and particularly his relationship with women.
A touching and poignant tale of human tragedy, hidden agendas and repressed memories.
