Two seasonal migrants, among other 500, have come in the North of Italy to make some money with the fruit harvest but they got trapped in stagnant days, with no work and with no perspective. Their camp is situated on land that once was owned by Martin and a few years ago, like many others, was expropriated. The farmer is now living inside an enclosure in a campervan, among his dogs, his anger. The land bonds their stories of resignation and hope. A reflection on human beings.
