Winner of 2014 Grand Prix at Cannes.


Twelve-year-old Gelsomina runs her unconventional Italian family, with three younger sisters working under her watchful eye. Together they keep the bees and make the honey on their father’s farm oblivious to the world outside of their own. Whilst all around rural life is falling apart, a TV show competition arrives from the city offering a cash prize for a family that can prove it’s the most traditionally Italian. Gelsomina wants to participate in the contest but her father is too consumed with the new farm laws to consider his daughter’s dream. They work tirelessly to expand the bee colonies and even take on help - a delinquent German boy from a youth rehabilitation exchange program. Tension mounts between her father and the boy and soon nothing will be the same for Gelsomina and her family.
