Synopsis: 

Nowadays, there are very few farms where a man, his wife and his family work together. But the land is like a woman when she is in love, it wants to be seeded. But how can this passion be kept alive when one or the other goes? And how can you keep the upper hand when money doesn't care? Is the farmer's creed what it used to be? Is God only a fantasy? For one year, I wanted to experience this with four Ardennes farm families.

Bio Director:
