Giuseppe is a shepherd who lives and works on the outskirts of Nuoro and has to deal with traffic and rigid town rules whilst leading his flock to the nearby pastures. The film tries, on one hand, to transmit the fading value of rural life, and on the other, depicts Giuseppe's strong attachment to it. The town denies him the right to be himself, to continue living where he always has, doing things his own way. The images and Giuseppe's own words describe the contradiction of a serene way of life pierced by bitter peeks of irony.
