Anton is 87. He inherited the farm, which time has almost taken. The nine cows will live as long as he does. They made a pact. Anton is living in the past. His time with the cows, hours of the day and the seasons, is his only present. It is cyclical and beautiful; life is an eternity of nature repetitions, but the family farm is now a ruin, the Virginia creeper has pushed the
windows in to the nice living room and winds on the furniture - no-one's been sitting in them for
decades ¿ and in his small living room and bedroom the rats plays on the table and floor. Family and neighbours love the old, stubborn man, but they are also worried. For him as well as for the animals. Soon, the authorities can not turn a blind eye anymore and action will be taken. Menawhile Anton puts the welfare state to the test, because he insists to take care of himself.
