A small documentary showing two similar but at the same time opposite experiences: the first is the story of Elisa and Gualtiero, two new farmers who arrived in Cinzano Torinese to grow organic crops and face the challenges of setting up a small business. The second is that of Matteo, who comes from generations of wine-makers and in the same area produces Freisa, Barbera and Bonarda wines. Two stories of young people who give everything they have to make a living from agriculture.
