Overview Fars hage, mors hus

When Mikael Emanuelsen walks up the churchfloor at his father’s funeral, he hasn’t seen his parents for ten years. After scattering soil on the coffin, he finds himself face to face with his mother. She tells him she is travelling to Spain and that the key to the house is in the same place as before. Mikael remembers his father, who cultivated a beautiful garden, and his mother who kept order in a silent house. But can childhood memories be trusted?
