Good Things Await

Niels is one of the last idealistic farmers in the agricultural country of Denmark. He makes some of the world's finest products, praised by the consumers, prized by the world's best restaurant, NOMA in Copenhagen, and nursed in harmony with the universe. But Niels' ways of farming in accordance with the planets and the primal instincts of the animals are not too popular with the authorities. They are threatening to withdraw his license to keep cattle, the buildings are deteriorating, and with no successor to take over, Niels risks seeing his life fall apart.

Phie Ambo co-directed “Family” (2001) which won the Joris Ivens award for best feature documentary. Ambo is also renowned for “Gambler” (2006), about Danish feature film director Nicolas Winding Refn, and “Free the Mind” (2012).
