How did a group of isolated farmers, clueless about politics, manage to win a fight against the French government’s decision to extend a military camp over their land? This documentary focuses on a 10-year long struggle for justice and freedom. Deep in the French countryside, the Larzac became the birthplace of the anti-globalisation movement in France. Yet they did not use weapons to defend themselves, only tractors and sheep.
