Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Academy Award-winning animator Frédéric Back adapts acclaimed author Jean Giono's inspirational tale of the difference a single determined person can make in the world when they put their mind and body to the task. A solitary shepherd selflessly determines to transform his barren surroundings into a thriving oasis against all odds and for the betterment of future generations. As each day passes and the tireless shepherd sows his seeds and acorns across the land, his sparse surroundings are eventually transformed into a lush and thriving forest. With the beauty of the newly green landscape offering a calming contrast to the two world wars that raged through the years, the shepherd's remarkable feat offers a look at both the awe inspiring power of nature and the shining hope that can emerge from the most unlikely of places.
