A family of absent men and courageous women. A legacy which contains valuable lessons. An opportunity to a new start. A voyage in search of the simplest way of living.

Gianna has been living with her grandmother in the back room of La Cucina dei Fiori, an Italian Deli in Barcelona. She knows nothing of her family’s past. But on the night when her grandmother dies, she finds among her things the key to a windmill situated in a small village in the north of Italy and a diary of her great grandmother, Anice, with missing pages. When her life seems to fall apart, Gianna finds in the history of her great grandmother the inspiration to start again and sets out for Italy in search of her roots. Through this journey we get to know Anice, her almost magical relation with nature, the story of her love disrupted by the outbreak of the Great War and mysterious reasons why she had to abandon everything. But at the same time, we accompany Gianna in the passage of personal rediscovery and in what really is important in life: love, friendship and a place to call home.
