Robert, a 91-year-old, set-in-his-ways pensioner, lives on a small allotment in Vienna. When his beloved dog dies during the night, he is determined, despite his failing body, to dig a hole on his property to put his dear friend to rest. He soon realises he is incapable of the strenuous task, and begrudgingly enlists the services of Adib, a migrant from Afghanistan. As the two dredge through prejudices to find common ground, Adib finds ways to pacify Robert, whose humanity briefly surfaces when he becomes concerned about a gaping, unattended wound on Adib's foot. When the situation suddenly becomes life- or-death, their day takes an unexpected turn—with tremendous, irreversible consequences.
