Domaine des Grandes Terres
The harvest begins at the Domaine des Grandes Terres, masterfully managed by Charlotte Debat-Pujol, somewhere in the Bergerac vineyards. One of the Spanish seasonal workers, Diego, catches the attention of Jacques, the cellar master, and Virginie, the owner's sister. He looks like a man who came several years ago and whom, obviously, no one wants to find here...
Shortly after, a series of disasters hit the Grandes Terres and the Spaniard was implicated. Alexandre, the young heir to the vineyard, wonders about his family's past, of which he knows practically nothing, and about this man. Is he really the one who once worked here? If so, what does he want? The life of the estate unfolds under the watchful eye of Jules, the son of the cellar master, a silent and solitary child who watches friendships, loves and resentments being formed.
At the end of this eventful harvest season, Alexandre will be faced with the decisive choice of obeying the sense of honor and propriety that has always been advocated in the family or of deciding his own life...
