The cornfield – just an area for producing food … or a land full of secrets? In the western industrial nations cornfields and woods take up the greatest proportion of rural land. But how much natural life dwells in a cornfield? Why are some inhabitants harmful and others useful and what do the colourful flowers at the edge of the field promise us? The film introduces the surprisingly large diversity of field inhabitants. We follow a hamster family through a season full of adventures and are drawn into an unknown world – a world of which we thought we knew everything about.
