Jarka  Kubsova - Mountain Country


An old mountain farm in South Tyrol. A woman battling against nature. A world with its very own rules.

Rosa is a woman like no other in Tiefenthal. During the early 1940s, while the sons of South Tyrol are being consumed by the war, the youngest daughter of the Breitenbergers remains behind on the farm with her father. In the difficult years following her father's death, Rosa is left to fend for herself in this isolated landscape, battling against nature to forge a life.

Two generations later, Rosa's grandson Hannes and his wife Franziska are relying on tourism to keep the farm afloat. But life up here is no picnic. And the problems they face raise an old question: should they stay or leave?
