In the autumn 2002, the fifty head of cattle on Junkkonen farm are taken away by a slaughter truck, and the cowshed falls silent. The wheels of development turn, but two middle-aged people are left behind. The small municipality of Oulunsalo is planning to build factories and industrial parks next to the airfield, as well as a road that would chop up the farmers´ fields. The old way of living is dying. The Junkkonens are leading a quiet life and contemplating the future. When their youngest child falls seriously ill the family awakes and reprioritizes everything. The documentary is director Mervi Junkkonen´s journey to her birthplace and to the history that she will not continue.
