The return of an animal brings havoc in villages of the alps while researchers and rangers will pursue the traces to studyit's behavior, pastors organize to face it and the people are divided over its presence. Very few people have seen it, but everyone is talking about: the wolf is extinct in the mountains since the beginning of '900, animal full of symbolic meanings.

We started a journey trough the alpine valleys of piedmont, liguria, valle d'aosta  and then in france, in the ubaye valley. In these stages we have learned that in the countries where the wolf made his return, just say the word "wolf" to open a "pandora's box". A river that starts from the simple event of the return of an animal and is pouring on contemporary society by dragging in a vortex problems related to their land, and employment status, until you get to questions of political and philosophical about  human beings and their relationship with nature.
