Spanish subtitled

For thousands of years the mountain has been the natural shelter for men. Even so, life up there is hard, complex, slow and repetitive, silent and lonesome. Carme and her family live in the mountains of the Sierra Cavallera (Ripollés). The life of this family of farmers is marked by the seasons. Day after day, Carme struggles to live and work, as generations of women have done before her, in a world full of harmony whose rythms are dictated by Nature. One more year, Spring has arrived.
