Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2020

Marta and Roland live a modest and comfortable countryside life with their young son Nathan. But when the Albanian itinerant worker Valmir enters the family's life, their world tips out of balance. The cerebral Roland hires the unpolished, taciturn, Valmir to renovate the place, and it doesn't bother him at first that Marta feels drawn to the young man. At the same time as Valmir gets on with the job, he also pushes increasingly more into the family's everyday life. He seems to be tied particularly to the young Nathan in a special way. Soon Marta is forced to realize that she and Valmir are connected by a secret that brings not only her marriage but also their entire existence in danger.
