SYNOPSIS

A village in Carinthia is suffering from rural depopulation and economic downfall. Toni and his inn “Adam“ are fighting for existence as well.

But the inhabitants have found an unusual hobby. They collect art. The so called “painting week” has been their gleam of hope and highlight of the year for over three decades now. International artists are invited and work in open studios, with active participation from the local people. Then there is hustle and bustle, people celebrate and have art-minded conversations and of course paintings are bought and collected. For some, their paintings mean the world to them. Toni is one of them.

But all this could be over soon. The painting week has always been near to the locals' hearts. But the project's supporting pillars are shaken well just now. There are the grudgers, the old conflicts between the German and the Slovenain speaking people. There is the new leadership of the club, which is good at improving things so much it actually makes them worse, and the disappointed people from Suetschach, who retreat. And there is Toni, who is thinking about selling his collection, keeping business in mind. Suddenly, the whole “painting week” project is endangered.
