A five-week shoot in Puglia, entirely in the province of Taranto from April to May 2019.
After a three-year absence, Nica, an Agronomics student, goes back to her town in Puglia where she finds a complicated situation: her family’s olive trees have been infected with a parasite, her father is prepared to do anything to bring money in, her mother is in the throes of depression because the shop she was supposed to manage isn’t opening any more. However, Nica hasn’t forgotten the values that her grandmother handed down to her and tries, against all odds, to find a solution.
