In a small Catalonian village, the peach farmers of the Solé family spend every summer together picking fruit from their orchard. But when plans arise to install solar panels and cut down trees, the members of this tight-knit group suddenly face eviction — and the loss of far more than their home.
Carla Simón’s luminous feature—the Golden Bear winning Spanish submission to the Oscars®— is a vibrant generational portrait of farming life told from multiple perspectives. As the clash between tradition and modernity becomes harder to ignore, a family searches for solutions under the baking sun.
