Salento in southern Italy. A small family-run textile factory is forced to close and three generations of women must now struggle to keep the wolf from the door. In order to settle their debts their home is sold. Now that her brother has emigrated, it falls to energetic Adele to find a way out of their crisis. Whilst her sister only dreams of becoming an actress and her conservative daughter doesn’t even grasp the reality of the situation, Grandma at least appears to bear these cruel knocks with endearing equanimity. Nonetheless, once these women move to the country their life seems to find its own rhythm as they begin cultivating the soil and selling or bartering their produce. Not only do they discover that their new self-sufficient life style is a relaxing down-shift; it also gives them strength.
