Challenging the boundaries between fiction, anthropology and reverie, the film is set in the Tuscan Alps, where German occupying forces massacred hundreds of civilians before their retreat at the end of WWII.
Pacifico, a shepherd born in the wake of the war among these breathtaking mountains, might now be forced to abandon them, as his very existence, suspended between the phantoms of a bloody past and the harbingers of an obscure future, must bow to the gestation of the Europe to come.
