The Man of the Tractor

  • Portugal
Audio Tracks 

In a small village in the middle of Portugal lives a man who drives his tractor, which is his companion. Everyday he drives and works the land or looks at the orchard. But his body is deteriorating. He exercises and looks for photos of when he was young to renew his driving license. And in the face of inevitability he resists, taking care of his tractor.
