Continents apart from one another, this film interweaves stories of two farming families aiming to reinvent themselves on their land. One family—a poised French matriarch and the son she raised among her vines—tends a centuries-old, biodynamic vineyard in Southern Rhône. Across the ocean in Humboldt, California, another family—a brash father and his more restrained son—carefully manage a state-legal, sun-grown, organic cannabis farm.
