In a Mexican Menonite community, Johann (Cornelio Wall Fehr) sits at breakfast with his wife, Esther (Miriam Toews), and their children. As they all leave to begin their daily routines, Johann sits alone and weeps. He is having an affair with Marianne (Maria Pankratz), which he has revealed to Esther, but his love for his family and his deep religious beliefs create inner turmoil. He confides in a friend and his father, but eventually it is Marianne who makes the decisive move in their relationship.
