At the Feichtmair’s farm, no one can afford to be squeamish. Especially not during the “meat weeks,” when in addition to the work on the field, the pig has to be slaughtered and elaborately processed. Daughter Margarete no longer feels up to the work, while her eighty-one-year-old mother wants to carry on with it. A film about complicated bonds within family and business. A rough, touching protocol of radical change.
