A young woman goes through her own loneliness, reconstructing the sense of the bond with her land and with love. Perhaps it is she, Cecilia Capace Minutolo - the Princess of Squinzano and poetess who in 1699 at the age of 18 married Giovanni Enriquez Marquis of Campi Salentina – who returns to the places of her life. But his time cannot be reconciled both with the story that seems suspended and with the apparent immobility that agitates the olive trees sick with Xylella.
The wind of the exhausted summer marks the unresolved passage of love between the churches and the votive shrines on the side of the streets that listen to a new and ancient song lost in a tear.
