EN - A farmer and his land… this is not your average love story: this tale is more down to earth than anything you can ever imagine. Is farming a true calling? How much love does it take for a farmer to fulfil his destiny?

FR - Un fermier et ses terres. Ce n’est pas une histoire d’amour courante. Cette histoire est plus terre à terre que vous ne puissiez l’imaginer. L’agriculture est-elle une véritable vocation ? Combien d’amour un fermier doit-il investir pour mener à bien sa destinée ? Quatre histoires dressant le portrait de quatre familles nous entraînent à travers les quatre saisons à la recherche du coeur de l’agriculture.
