Through a series of interviews with the inhabitants of a valley in the foothills of the Veneto region, the documentary describes the environment of the middle mountains, retracing the evolution of the landscape from the 1940s to the present day. The opinions of the protagonists follow one another, intertwining in a continuous counterpoint that interprets the sense of belonging, the relationship with work and the environment of those who have chosen to make their home on the slopes of Val Leogra, by choice or by fate.

The documentary explores the transformation of the mountains in terms of geography and society. The ideas, hopes, plans and observations of the protagonists are constantly compared, exploring the sense of disorientation and disquiet involved in the contrasting desire for modernity and the need for spiritual nutrition among those who, by choice or by fate, live on the slopes of the Val Leogra. The dynamic expressive language alternates images underlining the beauty of the natural sites with a series of interviews with residents. The testimony reveals new awareness, opportunities and sensitivity, together with the fears and fatigue that the harsh beauty of the mountains helps to combine and associate in the path towards understanding the need to help oneself and others, rediscovering the lost meaning of things and the balance between environmental and social justice.
