The youngest son returns home to help his father and brothers meet the targets for a profitable order on cut wood.
During his absence nothing has changed: the same back-breaking toil for the sake of a piece of bread, the same

understanding for their kin. And the river, which may rise at any time and wash away the parental home that stands
on its banks.
