Subtitles: (No Subtitles)

Wessel is a hard-working thirteen-year-old boy from the countryside. He likes nature, animals, and his grandfather. Many years ago, his grandfather founded a successful butcher’s shop in the village, and he hopes that Wessel will become a good butcher himself one day.

Wessel is not quite sure yet. He respects his grandfather and enjoys working in the butcher shop. At the same time, he likes to spend time with animals, he loves rabbits and does not like the idea of slaughtering cows. Wessel also worries that some schoolmates think of him as a brute and murderer because of the butcher shop. He does not understand their hypocrisy, and he wonders how people actually think that meat gets on their plates. Will Wessel continue the family tradition?
