Tom travels to the country for the funeral of his lover. There, he's shocked to find that no one knows who he is, nor who he was to the deceased man, whose menacing brother soon sets the rules of a twisted game. In order to protect the family's name and grieving mother, Tom must now deny his own sexuality, while playing the peacekeeper in an isolated household whose obscure past bodes even greater darkness for his "trip" to the farm.
Adapted from the original play by acclaimed Quebecois playwright Michel Marc Bouchard, Tom at the Farm is the fourth film by multi-award-winning young director Xavier Dolan, who also takes the title role. This taut psychological thriller centres on the ever-growing gap between city and country and the often oppositional nature of men who live there.
