A spring-till-winter lasting story about people in rural Latvia at the time when the country was entering the European Union. In the Shade of the Oak Tree is a contemplation on the present situation of peasants' lives; it is a story of rural Latvia at the time of entering the European Union, told by six locals. These people - biological farmers, a newcomer German peasant, soybean enthusiasts, the head of a rural parish - represent different attitudes toward life and farming, sometimes irrational, offbeat and even mystical. Their stories converge in a visually appealing style, and meld together as the final part of director's film trilogy, now covering thirty years of rural life in Latvia.
