‘An understated drama with an open heart and a lithe sense of humour.’


In the rolling hills of Northland New Zealand, painfully shy dairy farmer Ross has made a happy life thanks to the unstinting love of his more exuberant wife Beth. When she dies suddenly Ross is left alone, crushed but incapable of displaying his emotions. It falls to his equally tongue-tied, reluctant son Bruce to muck in to keep the farm afloat – with a little help from their small rural community.

Despite his squeamishness, Bruce proves a dab hand at milking, birthing and hay baling, and what he and Ross lack in words they make up for in help. Beneath this exterior of strong and silent men, big emotions rumble deeply in this distinctive, moving and laconically funny Kiwi film.
