Marko is an apprentice working on a large agricultural complex in the Nuthe Urstrom valley district sixty kilometres south of Berlin. If he passes his final examinations he will be a fully-fledged farmer. That is, if he really wants to. But he's not sure. He doesn't have many friends outside the workplace and the eleven other apprentices see him as a rather uncommunicative guy and something of a loner. But when a new apprentice named Jacob joins them Marko slowly begins to come out of his shell. The two men get to know each other – during the harvest, whilst transporting the grain from the field, or removing calves from their mothers. But then, the two men escape to Berlin for a day and, suddenly nothing is the same any more.
