It’s good to come from a small town, if for nothing else than the joy of leaving it. But a part of you will always be there, in your neighbors and in the soil, waiting for your return.

Ettore returns to his hometown to sell his family home a year after a tragic car accident claimed the lives of his parents. Emptying the house brings him back to his childhood, the last argument he had with his father, and the people he grew up with who almost make him long for the simplicity of the past. The encounter that affects him most is an unexpected meeting with Crazy Ester, the town recluse. She spends her days sitting along the riverbank and muttering, but not everything she says is gibberish. During this challenging time, Ettore unearths a family secret and finds true love.
