A trio of lonely herdsman, together with their cattle, prepare for a summer of scarcity in the Alps. In the midst of this male-dominated hierarchy, the “Sennentuntschi,” a figurine made of sticks and straw, is brought to life, and before long the men die one by one. It’s a bizarre declaration of love to the vengeful “Almighty Woman” and a dark-humored piece in defiance of the homeland.
