What happens when three neo-hipsters from Berlin arrive at a farm in eastern Poland? This humorous documentary shows what transpires when poetic ideas come up against tough rural reality.

A trio of 30-somethings from Berlin decide to exchange their morning yoga for grazing cows and chopping wood in a small village in eastern Poland. They rent a wooden cottage from a local farmer and begin to settle here. Over time, they find that for those who have been here for generations, living in harmony with nature means something other than reducing their use of plastic or not eating meat. Mutual interaction is made difficult by barriers of opinion and language, and efforts at communication often result in frank and funny debates about alternative lifestyles, spirituality, vegetarianism and the relationship between humans and nature.
