    • Synopsis
    • How did isolated farmers, who were conservative and clueless about politics, win a fight against the French state decision to extend -at their expense- a military camp in the neighbourhood? In this little corner of French countryside that is the Larzac, 103 families make the oath to stay united and defend a priceless territory. Larzac will then become the birthplace of anti-globalism movements. If they don’t have weapons, they have tractors, and sheep… Going over the local struggle for 10 years, newcomers and original inhabitants fight for the values of freedom and justice.
