Raskaat lumihiutaleet

An elderly couple approaches the camera in a snowy countryside road lit by the front lights of a car. The cars come and go. The passing headlights reveal the faces of the couple. The video builds up an impression of distance, closeness and anticipation: Things confronted in the relationship between parents and their adult children.
