Helena and Ivan are about to embark on a new chapter in their lives. They are leaving the megacity of Barcelona and moving to rural Catalonia to take over a cork oak plantation. Their cork business is not only to provide them with a new livelihood, but it is also to be run fairly and sustainably. With all their ideals, Helena and Ivan come up against a harsh reality: City, country, desire, reality and gender roles all collide. And the two are soon heading for a crisis that will not only test their joint project, but also their entire relationship.
