A family of beekeepers living in the isolated Tuscan countryside find their household disrupted by the simultaneous arrival of a silently troubled teenage boy taken in as a farmhand, and a reality TV show intent on showcasing the family. Both intrusions are of particular interest to the eldest daughter, 12 year old Gelsomina, who is struggling to find her footing in the world. A richly textured coming-of-age tale and a quietly effective tribute to a vanishing way of life.
