Gigio, a 92-year-old farmer, has spent his whole life in Monte San Martino, a remote village in Central Italy. In recent decades the agricultural exodus has left a desert in the area. Gigio‘s family has remained but the fate of his farm still seems uncertain. His sharp thoughts form a bridge between the spiritual values of a pre-industrialised era and those of the restless present. The film is an attempt to present the final echoes of a lost world in contemporary Italian society.
