Ivan Di Palma is a farmer, with a degree in philosophy, who chose to return to his village in Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park, to devote himself to the wheat sowing.
Teresa Vallone is an elderly woman, a peasant, who chose to emigrate to Germany when she was young, abandoning the land to improve the living conditions of her children.
Their stories intertwine following the cycle of the seasons and the life of a grain of wheat, from sowing to harvesting, questioning the past, the present but above all the planet's future that will be left to the next generations.
