“The technological, economic, and social system we are familiar with is now over. The premium mankind put on material things has proved to be a boomerang. Our story plays out in a small mountain village cut off from the rest of the world, and miraculously enough, it seems immune to the “fate” that is wreaking havoc across the planet Earth. This village is a place that quietly continues to thrive, thanks to a native know-how as to using what nature offers us, but above all, the presence of a special young woman whose origins harken back to one of the most ancient divinities known to us.” (Antonio Pisu)
