He takes care of the maintenance of the power lines, but also to divert the electricity of these and to traffic the counters to render service to the poorest in his village. He is also a counselor, a friend of all, a loving husband and the father of a flock of girls. His dream is to install wind turbines on the mountains to supply the entire valley with electricity. But it comes up against not only the electricity company with which it plays hide-and-seek, but especially a new generation of corrupt politicians, quickly enriched in contact with their mafia customers Russian and Chinese, and ready to buy all surrounding lands for lucrative contracts, without any consideration for the well-being of the inhabitants of the village, poorly protected by a patriarchal Pretory of Ancients.
