In a small village in the mountains of Tuscany, there is an old breed of sheep called Zerasca after the village of Zeri. Cinzia Angiolini is one of the very few local herders. Her way of farming sheep is not productive: she talks to them, takes care of them, and she takes them home with her every night. La signora di Zeri, in its purely observational form, represents the cross-section of a lifestyle consisting of toil and sacrifice, in which the deep bond with animals and Nature can give life a powerful meaning.
