ANNA (30), beautiful and wild, runs a farm in an unspoilt corner of Sardinia. Until one day, the construction of a mega-resort on her land forces her to engage in the biggest battle of her life.
ANNA (30) is beautiful and wild. Free and rebellious. She is free in every sense that the word can encompass. Free because she lives in unspoilt nature in one of the wildest corners of Sardinia. Free because she stubbornly defends an archaic profession, that of breeder. Free because she has left her husband who beat her. Libera because she unleashes herself in sensual dances in the village pub before the not always benevolent eyes of the inhabitants of the community. Free because when she gets a bit drunk she indulges in fleeting adventures. Anna is this, magnetic and indomitable… take it or leave it.
She is a strong and fragile woman who knows how to pick herself up when everything seems to be sinking. She loves that land, beautiful and wild, which repays her by helping her heal her ‘wounds’… until, one morning…
Anna is woken up by the din of the diggers of a powerful real estate group that is about to build a mega-resort right on her land! A project that will bring a lot of work to that depressed area, among the poorest in Europe. Everyone in the community is celebrating, except her. The bulldozers uproot her centuries-old olive trees, rape her land and cover with cement her pastures that have fed their flocks for generations.
Anna is stubborn and won’t stand for it. She wants to give freedom back to those wild hills and let that land breathe: it was born free like her and must remain so. And so she remains alone, but proud, in her battle.
