A Piece of Sky Drii Winter

  Michael Koch

  Switzerland, Germany     136 minutes


A moving meditation on the patient nature of enduring love, A Piece of Sky tells the deeply human story of Marco and Anna. Marco, a man of few words distinct for his enormous size, takes a job as a farmhand in an idyllic village deep in the Swiss Alps. There, he meets Anna, a local dreamer with a daughter from a previous relationship. Against the backdrop of an ever-changing mountain landscape, a deep and powerful love blossoms between them—but Marco’s increasingly erratic behavior threatens their happiness. Is he losing control?
