FilmFREEDOM shows the life of Sardinian shepherds, who follow an ancient code of laws. When they run afoul of the modern law, they flee to the mountains and become bandits. The realistic depiction of the bandits’ life and traditions pays witness to the distinctive moral codes of the island’s inhabitants and the poetry and pathos of nature and man.
