Helmer, an unmarried farmer in his fifties, lives with his aged, bedridden father in the Dutch countryside. His working days are marked by the visits of milk collector Johan, a man of his own age for whom Helmer holds a secret fascination. One day Helmer decides to renovate the house, buying himself a new double bed and moving his father upstairs. His life gains even more momentum when adolescent farmhand Henk comes to help him out.

Based on Gerbrand Bakker's beloved bestseller, this subtle portrait of rural loneliness delivers a spare but hopeful story of self-denial and personal growth as Helmer tries to cast off the shackles of closeted emotional repression he's worn all his life.

“A poignant reflection on solitude, homosexual repression and aging. . . Middle-aged gay men in particular will respond to its mournful sensuality.”
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
