Rolf and Eva, a couple in late middle age, are stuck in a worn-out relationship that has clearly lost its passion. One night Eva tries to seduce Rolf. Although she is unsuccessful, something suddenly happens that completely transforms their relationship.
This short film from Sweden is filled with the Scandi signature of uneasy, slightly odd comedies. With a skewed house cracking their northern balance (which might be emblematic for their own wobbly relationship), the characters of Seeds of the Fall find their routine shaken, for better or worse.
