ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Tra l'autunno 1897 e l'estate 1898, alcune famiglie di contadini vivono in una cascina della Bassa Bergamasca. Tra i componenti di questa comunità esiste un profondo legame spirituale e culturale che li porta a vivere insieme cose belle e cose tragiche, avvenimenti ordinari e avvenimenti straordinari. Dall'autunno alla primavera, quando il lavoro dei campi concede respiro, riprendono le vicende degli uomini con i loro sentimenti, le loro paure e le speranze, sia nelle cose di ogni giorno, che negli avvenimenti più importanti, come la nascita di un bambino, un matrimonio o la festa di paese. La vita era povera e qualsiasi novità acquistava valore e significato, nulla andava perduto, tutto poteva essere utile al corpo e all'anima. Ma a volte la volontà del padrone poteva portare via tutto, come una stagione maligna.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"The Tree Of Wooden Clogs": Lombardy, end of the 19th century. Four farmer families live in a commune in order to work from there on the land of the wealthy landlord. The families are very poor, but have patience and understanding. One widow, mother to six children, says a prayer to Christ so he may save her sick cow, her only income. The widow takes some water from a creek and gives it to the cow, which is indeed healed the next morning; grandfather Anselmo hopes to plant his tomatoes first; the farmers butcher a pig. One farmer, Batisti, is father of three children. His son Minec goes to school, but his wooden shoe breaks, so Batista hacks a tree in order to make him a new shoe. The landlord eventually finds out, and punishes Batista by expelling him and his family from his property.
