In the heart of Luberon, in a village called Lacoste, Pierre Cardin, multimillionaire icon of the fashion industry, has been buying for 15 years around 40 houses (1/3 of the village) and about the same amount of hectares left uncultivated.

 

Cyril Montana, a child of the region who became a writer in Paris, realizes that his village is in danger. Feeling alone and helpless while facing this situation, he decides to seek help from those who are actually changing the world around the world: thinkers and activists, philosophers…And this with the aim of finding concrete projects to revitalize the village.

Accompanied by Thomas Bornot who will film this quest, Cyril will initiate a real « Trip to Utopia » in order to find positive alternatives and we hope the result to be an inspiring documentary.
