1962, the world is facing the biggest crisis of modern times: the Cuban missile crisis and the nightmare of nuclear war. Unexpectedly, the front-line moves to Murgia, a small, impoverished sub- region of Apulia in southern Italy. On these hills, the Jupiter missiles pose a threat to the farmers and shepherds who live there. This forgotten land becomes the theatre of the struggle between the USSR and the United States.
