Proud and conscientious young farmer Pierre, discovers that one of his cows may suffer from a form of Mad Cow Disease (FHD in the film). He could lose his herd and his farm if the authorities find out — they’ll slaughter all his cows and partial compensation takes forever. Pierre takes matters into his own hands, but "oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive".
First-time feature director, Hubert Charuel, introduces us to a suspenseful "agricultural thriller". Charuel himself grew up on a dairy farm and it was painful for his parents to learn that he wanted to be a filmmaker.
