The film follows a year on a working farm with Gottfried and Elfie at a small homestead in the Waldviertel (Lower Austria’s Forest Quarter). Thanks to ecological management and self-marketing they are largely self-sufficient. The film explores the foundations of a fulfilled dream of self-sufficiency in harmony with nature, and studies its processes, rules and regulations, bringing these to life using formal, serialised narrative techniques.
