Fiorenzo is a man marked by a life dedicated to the transhumance of sheep, facing bad weather and the difficulties it entails. Winter is ending and green paints the woods around him, Fiorenzo’s season is at an end, he knows his health will not allow him to return next year. He faces it alone with his animals: this historical and natural world is increasingly confronted with modern society.
