A tragic accident and a desperate promise: you will see your mother again, says Giuseppe to his nine-year-old son Antò after the mother dies while harvesting crops. Since Giuseppe can no longer work in the quarry after having lost an eye on the job, father and son are forced into the same toil that claimed the mother’s life. (Festival information, Mannheim-Heidelberg 2020)
