Synopsis:
Starting in 1865, the cultivation of grapes in heated greenhouses shaped the character and landscape of the « Druivenstreek » (Grape Region), a new eldorado located only a stone’s throw from Brussels.
But following the advent of the European internal market in 1963, this rich and prosperous region which once boasted 3,000 growers and 33,000 greenhouses today harbors no more than 30 professional growers. A slow agony.
A true story, without fiction, without “off-screen voice”, told by those who experienced it in their daily lives.
