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, as the sons of South Tyrol are being devoured by the war, the youngest daughter of the Breitenbergers remains behind on the farm with her father. In the tough years following her father's death, Rosa is left to her own devices in this isolated landscape, battling against nature to forge a life for herself.

Two generations later, Rosa's grandson Hannes and his wife Franziska depend on tourists for the farm's survival. But life up here is no picnic. And with their new problems comes an old question: should they stay or leave?

For all readers of Robert Seethaler and Dörte Hansen.
