A decade after his critically acclaimed Le Quattro Volte, Michaelangelo Frammartino returns with this equally unclassifiable cinematic delight.

During the economic boom of the 1960s, Europe’s highest building is being built in Italy’s prosperous North. At the other end of the country, young speleologists explore Europe’s deepest cave in the untouched Calabrian hinterland. The intruders’ venture goes unnoticed by the inhabitants of a small neighbouring village, but not by the old shepherd of the Pollino plateau whose solitary life begins to interweave with the group’s journey.

Frammartino's painterly eye finds the essence of the Calabrian countryside, as two journeys gradually unfold.
