Greek farmer Themis, retired teacher Ippazio, and young activist Giacomo feel the impact of the pipeline on their lives and lands. Together, they unite in a global fight against the project, undeterred by potential consequences, driven by a profound desire to safeguard the environment, democracy, and European values. A human portrait of a battle that is still ongoing.
