Short black & white documentary in which, without interviews, narration or dialogue, a picture is given of a Dutch polder landscape throughout several cold winter months. While outside snow and freezing cold change the appearance of the bleak meadows, filmed from a static perspective, the cows wait impatiently for spring in the snug sheds. A film about the Dutch winter in variations of white, black and grey.
