This documentary leads to the autumnal Lago Maggiore, to its wild nature and the people, who have closely connected to the lake. One of the last professional fishermen explains, why most of the fish in the restaurants do not even come from the Lago. Animal rights protectors document the lake’s rich biodiversity with their camera traps. Some of the fishermen still work at an old age, because even for traditional companies it is difficult to find successors. However, one has traded his life as a banker for the loneliness in the mountains, to take over his uncle’s alpine pasture at an altitude of over 1,000 metres.
