Ada is searching for her biological father, who lives in seclusion on a remote island – and accidentally runs over his favorite sheep Steve on the way. At first, the father doesn’t want to know anything about Ada. Only when she pretends to help him find Steve again do the two of them slowly become closer. Only the unpleasant smell from the trunk clouds the mood.
