Harvest

Loading...
"Breathtaking in its subtle beauty, Harvest is an achingly romantic tale of an innocent but increasingly passionate affair that develops between two simple farmhands. Life on a farm is all that sullen teen Marco knows-- leading a perfunctory and quiet life of working, going to school and avoiding the advances of girls. However, his self-imposed solitude ends when curly-haired Jakob, rejecting the banking world, arrives to train on the farm. Although initially cautious and tentative with each other, it is soon obvious that the unspoken sexual tension is becoming increasingly hard to resist-- something a spontaneous trip to Berlin resolves once and for all. Proving that true love can blossom in even the most unlikely of places, Harvest is as rich and rewarding as it is heart warming"-- [...]

Fall of Eagles

These three families influenced the political landscape of Europe, and their personal struggles, tragedies and decisions within these relationships affected Europe to a greater degree than they ever imagined.
