The morning is still foggy, wet clothes serenely hang from colourful lines. Silence prevails when he leaves the house early in the morning. She remains behind with the children; the wasps eat jam from the floor. Short documentary about two people, connected by an eternal timespan spent together. The couple have eight children and take care of their herd of cattle. The fact that life has not exactly turned out the way they had hoped is their mutual fate.
