Do tomatoes taste better when they listen to the music of Richard Wagner? 

Elias, a small farming village in central Greece, is dying out. But two cousins team up with the village grannies to cultivate tomatoes. With a little help from Wagner’s music, the villagers export their little jars with organic tomato recipes across the world. The film follows the protagonists of this unlikely story, as they struggle to make their dream come true. Humorous and bittersweet, this documentary speaks to us about the importance of reinventing oneself in times of crisis and the power of human relationships.
