The film investigates the bonds of family, this time tackling the relationship between a husband and wife. A trip to the pastoral countryside reveals a dark, sinister reality for a family from the city. Eschewing easy answers and tackling a wide array of themes, it poetically renders the persistent human state of exile from our surroundings. Based on the novel The Laughing Matter by William Saroyan.
