Absurdist film about a couple who struggle with their relationship when three members of a brass band come to them to shelter from the rain. The silent war has to be fought against the noise of the music now.

At a farm on the vast countryside of North Groningen, David is silently eating while sulking Claudia is looking out the kitchen window. Tension is running high when three sopping wet members of a brass band ring the doorbell. They have run out of petrol and are looking for shelter from the rain. The initially silent battle turns into chaos when the couple is forced to quarrel against the noise of the instruments. An absurdist film that accurately shows, with very little dialogue, where things go wrong.
