In the 30s, a small village in the Provence is losing its inhabitants because young people prefer to go to the city to find easy jobs and escape from being farmers living in relative poverty. Only a few old people and the poacher Panturle remain. Panturle dreams of bringing the village back to life, finding a wife, founding a family and work as a farmer. One day, the village is visited by a traveling knife-grinder, Urbain Gedemus and a young woman, Arsule. Gedemus treats Arsule like a slave, but Arsule accept this because she has nowhere to go and -we guess- her ‘work’ with Gedemus is the last thing that saves her from being a prostitute.

Together, they start a new life, made of hard farming work but mostly of happiness to have each other – fulfilling the earlier dreams of Panturle. Can anything break the happiness of their new life?
