This film tells the story of the daily, steadfast commitment of a group of young women in the Lunigiana region of Italy who have taken up the work of their grandparents. They are raising an unusual breed of sheep, which until a few years ago was facing extinction. The community has managed to develop a small-scale economy, protecting biodiversity and the dignity of the rural world as well as safeguarding the heritage of artisanal skills and traditions, symbolizing a new way of farming.
