Father and daughter rush out of the city to his mother’s house on the snow-covered countryside to bring private items to the hospital after her stroke. After the eight-year-old daughter is roughly rebuked by the father after a question, the two separate a childish malaise and a paternal coldness. In the house of the mother that distance between them becomes stronger, as the father divides the daughter to the cleaning, while he takes over the packing of the objects. Only when memories of his childhood fall towards him in his rush, the rigor dissolves and the daughter recognizes the fear with which her father is struggling.
