Set in a small farming community in mid-Wales, a place where the director's parents-both refugees-found a home. This is a landscape and population that is changing rapidly as small scale agriculture is disappearing and the generation who inhabited a pre-mechanized world is dying out. Much influenced by his conversations with the writer Peter Handke, the filmmaker leads us on a poetic and profound journey into a world of endings and beginnings; a world of stuffed owls, sheep, and fire.

I didn't know what to expect when I picked this film up, but it was better than I'd hoped for. I wish there were more films like it. It is a hard film to describe, beyond maybe saying it is a documentary of place. It does a good job of capturing the breadth of the community. It is quiet and meditative, and has a lovely soundscape - a good film to knit alongside.

This was said to be riveting and a masterpiece, well it is neither, but it has some beautiful footage and it has merit as a record of a way of life in Wales that is disappearing. The lighting is sometimes not very good but the music is exceptional.
