About the Film
A farm in the Jura Mountains, far away from the nearest village, is where Pauline and Alex’s dream of a self-sufficient life in harmony with nature has come true. Now the couple wishes to become totally independent by producing their own power. The pragmatic and easy-going engineer Samuel visits them to oversee the construction of a wind turbine. Pauline feels immediately attracted to him and suddenly realizes how limited her life has been.
