In an archaic Sicilian landscape, between sheep and sculpture, suspended between dream and reality, a particular man lives and works. Mixing Art and Nature as if he would be an alchemist. The film is set in a surreal western atmosphere, telling the exceptional ideas and projects of the shepherd-artist, Lorenzo Reina. Being a shepherd, unable to walk away from his place, he was driven by his ideas to create and travel in his own universe.Produced by Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia-Sede Sicilia
