A cow watches its reflexion in a mirror, a fat pig rests in a mud puddle, a rabbit’s paw is hanging like a talisman, a pheasant announces with its call the arrival of the stranger.
In this farm full of ani­mals of all kinds, the threat of death is close. Instead, a rite of blessing is taking place, celebrating the drama and the beauty of life.
