The employer comes from a bourgeois family, he practices a modern life. He doesn’t fit with the traditional stereotype of the rural producer. But he has a great major concern: the health of his baby. The employee is even younger and he has the urgent need of a job in order to support his new family.
Tragedy ensues: the employee’s baby dies in a tractor accident at his new job.
A film about the relationship between these two young men, and the tortuous relationship of both with happiness, freedom and work.
