Tom, a young advertising copywriter, travels to the country for a funeral. There, he's shocked to find out no one knows who he was to the deceased, whose brother soon sets the rules of a twisted game. Set in Quebec's rural panorama, Tom at the Farm is a psychological thriller that centres on the ever-growing gap between city and country and the oppositive nature of men who live there. Stockholm syndrome, deception, grief and secretive savageries pervade this brief and brutal pilgrimage through the warped and ugly truth. Adapted from the original play by Michel Marc Bouchard. FIPRESCI Award in Venice Film Festival.
