In a remote village in the north of Serbia something unexpected has happened. All of a sudden, a French family have moved to a poor place deserted by the young.

They believe they have found a promised land for growing grapes and winemaking. But they have found only old people in the village, distrusting people with old habits.

A new challenge awaited them back home in France – how to persuade sommeliers that superior wine can be made in an unkown and problematic region? Can they awake hope and breathe a new life into the old village?
