Where the Grass is Greener
Eva′s bags are packed, she′s ready to go. The 35-year-old mother of a grown-up son, has little choice in the matter – the good jobs are practically all gone in the East German town of Eberswalde. Her boyfriend Marco, however, can’t stand to see her leave. Eva′s been offered a summer job in Switzerland; three months of milking cows on a mountain. Without hesitating, and at very short notice, she heads for the Alps to help farmer Daniel take care of 40 lively and lovely dairy cows.
The crusty cheese-maker is very skeptical of his new assistant – on the other hand he has his own agenda since his wife ran away and he cannot run the farm by himself. Eva is not so keen on a new husband but proves that she is a good worker and shows a great interest in the art of making cheese.
Eva and Daniel work well together. Slowly, they get to know each other, and become more intimate. So intimate that when her boyfriend Marco shows up unexpectedly to check what′s going on, he senses a change in his girlfriend. As summer wanes, and the season begins to turn, Eva re-determines the course of her life, and finally makes a surprising choice.
