According to a new local bylaw, herders now have to pay a tax to take their livestock to the mountain, as they’ve done for ages. Exasperated by bureaucracy, shepherd Antonio seems to be able to communicate only with the animals and that luxuriant mountain that he has been going to since he was a baby, getting to know all its meanders.

It also invites to reflect on how exploitation and profit systems cut the oxygen from the relationship between human beings, livestock, and land that could be a response to the climate crisis and more evolved forms of coexistence.
