"Emma lives as a pig-breeder at the shabby and hopelessly indebted farm of her ancestors. She slaughters the pigs in her own true way: she treats them lovingly till the last day, the lethal cut shows something like tenderness and in Emma's strong arms the dying animals cease bleeding calmly and submittingly. But Emma is lonely. Only Henner, the good-natured and somehow simple country policeman proposes to her in regular intervals. Emma refuses, because she lives in mutual hatred with his intrusive and omnipresent mother. One night a Jaguar smashes on her farm. Inside the wrecked car lies an unconscious man and a bag of money. Emma's luck seems perfect: fate has thrown money into her lap and has given a man to her. But this man, Max is seriously ill: because of cancer of the pancreas he has only a few weeks to live"--Container

Emma lives alone in her big farmhouse. Her animals are her family - she talks to her chickens, lies down in the sty next to her pigs and loves her cows. But she also has to make a living. For Emma, this is a natural process. The best she can do is to give her pigs a short, sweet death - and she has developed her very own way of killing, most tenderly. For all her happiness on the farm, there are two things in Emma's life she desperately wants - money to save her farm, which is deeply in debt, and a man. One night she is woken by a crash. In her field she finds a wrecked Ferrari, and in it, an unconscious man - with an enormous amount of cash. It looks like Emma's prayers have been answered - but have they? Will the mysterious Max adapt to rural life, or will his past come back to haunt them?
