The clouds are lying low over the geest as Ingwer Feddersen, 47, returns to his home village. There is something he has to make amends for. Grandmother Ella is in the process of losing her mind; Grandfather Sönke is steadfastly holding his ground in the village pub. He has seen better days, just like the whole village. When did this decline begin?
Was it when the large farms grew and the small ones died away? When Ingwer went to university, walking out on the old man and his guest house?
Dörte Hansen (“This House is Mine”) has written a warm-hearted story about the disappearance of a rural world, of loss, parting and of beginning anew. Host: Gisela Steinhauer
