It's All So Quiet

It's All So Quiet

A middle aged farmer, living with his old and bedridden father, tries to find truth in life.

Helmer, a single farmer in his fifties, lives with his aged, bedridden father in the Dutch countryside. His working days are marked by the visits of milk collector Johan, a man of his own age for whom Helmer holds a secret fascination. One day Helmer decides to renovate the house, buying himself a new double bed and moving his father upstairs. His life gains even more momentum, however, when adolescent farmhand Henk comes to help him out.
