In the Val Badia, on the slopes of the Dolomites, Tobias manages a mountain farm at an altitude of 1500 metres, together with his family. In this microcosm, every aspect of their daily life has its place and natural pace. The same actions are repeated day after day, year after year, and the lives of men and animals are indissolubly interwoven, like links in a chain, with a production chain that begins with the birth of the animal and continues with its butchering, to then arrive on the table around which the family comes together.
