Kris på 27 er yderst beskyttende over for sin halvinvalide onkel, med hvem hun driver et mindre landbrug i Sønderjylland. De har et nært forhold og stor forståelse for hinanden, selvom de tilbringer det meste af deres finurlige hverdag i tavshed. Da Kris redder en kalv under en fødsel, bliver hendes interesse for dyrlægefaget igen vakt, og hun udvikler et venskab med den snakkesalige dyrlæge Johannes og opdager langsomt, at der er et liv uden for gården. Her møder hun den unge Mike, som ser lige igennem hendes reserverede personlighed, og sød musik opstår mellem dem, og et skelsættende spørgsmål presser sig på.
Kris lives with her partly disabled uncle in rural Denmark and together they run a derelict farm. In their quirky yet loving relationship, built upon daily routines, words aren’t necessary. Kris is the dominant workhorse and she has taken on a motherly and overprotecting role towards her uncle. When Kris saves a calf under a complicated birth, her interest in the veterinary field is reawakened. She develops a friendship with the chatty veterinarian Johannes and slowly experiences life outside the farm. As love crosses her path, a possible life-changing question emerges.
