This short documentary tells the race to land and the abuse that this suffers in Sardinia. The island is colonized by speculative operations that steal a substantial part of the territory of the region which could be used for agriculture. Military bases, wind farms, photovoltaic and thermodynamic systems made ​​without any respect for the land and in clear opposition to the local communities. The film gives space to the voices of protest committees that fight, all over the island, against this shameless  aggression. The people involved in the protests argue his case with knowledge of the facts, passion, love.  At the end, Sardinia, wounded, still manages to reveal corners of incomparable natural beauty.
