synopsis

On his parents' farm, Martin, aged 11, watches helplessly as his family falls apart. His mother, cut off from the world around her, lives locked away in her room. The older brother he worships drowns his sorrows in alcohol, and his father, under the grandmother's thumb, is a powerless spectator of his family's decline. Martin gets ready to put an end to the chaos around him...
