Between 400 and 800 French farmers commit suicide every year. In 1999, the father of director Edouard Bergeon became one of them. Decades later, Bergeon returns to his roots in Southwest France to follow the Itards, a family of farmers, for 14 months. Their story provides a microcosm of the crisis engulfing farmers across Europe today. While telling their story, Bergoen tells his own. Directed by Edouard Bergeon.
