Corvaz is a simple and instinctive thirty-year-old man who works hard in his father’s vineyard and adores wandering around with his dog Toni. Life in the mountain village all centres on the bar, owned by a wealthy winemaker/landowner and managed by his son’s girlfriend. The men pass their time drinking, in an environment marked by resentment and false friendships, when one night, the wooden statues standing in the square are vandalised. Corvaz is immediately blamed. Even Mara, the lively barmaid, believes that it was him. However, trying to overcome the collective hostility, she meets up with him and a friendship develops, while the community’s desire for revenge becomes increasingly stronger. The code of respect that has held them together has now been broken.
