Synopsis:

"We've chosen the Larzac, because it's an abandoned region." - Michel Debré.

Marizette, Christiane, Pierre, Léon, and José… are some of the people, funny and moving, united together in a merciless struggle to save their land. A determined and joyful fight, but one that is also very trying and dangerous.

It all began in 1971, when the French government, with Michel Debré, Head of the Defense Department, as spokesperson, decided to enlarge the Larzac military camp. Without any prior discussion with the farmers, the camp was to be extended from 3,000 to 14,000 hectares.
Anger spread like wildfire, farmers rallied together and signed an oath: never would they hand over their land. In the daily confrontation with the army and police, they employed great imagination to ensure that their voices were heard. Soon, hundreds of Larzac committees sprouted up throughout France. Ten years of resistance, collective intelligence and solidarity that would carry them to victory.

Today the Larzac region is thriving more than ever.
