(Italy / 2022 / 97’)

A 4000-kilometer pipeline has been funded by the EU to transport gas from Azerbaijan to Italy. At the landing point on the coast of Puglia, the local community opposes yet another major fossil- fueled project, while the multinational company tries to convince the population of the benefits of the work. The story is told from both points of view, following three women: two activists in the protest movement and the multinational company's media manager. However, it will be the gaze of two children, sons of one of the activists, that will provide a different perspective. And as the Great Work advances between the sea and the countryside, the protest retreats in the courthouse. What are we willing to lose in order not to give up our ideals?
