Synopsis

Saverio and his seven-year-old brother Augusto have been living in a village in the Italian Alps with Uncle Fausto and Aunt Domenica since their parents died in a tragic car accident 4 years previously. Saverio has a strong spiritual bond with nature and is planning to spend part of his summer break in the high pastures to experience life as a shepherd and to learn how to make the local cheese.

The unexpected arrival of Valentino, from the USA, after a forty-year absence gives the village gossips something to talk about and Saverio's adventures continue as the gentle community is thrust into turmoil when a baby mysteriously disappears.
