At the tender age of 6, Gavino Ledda (Saverio Marconi) is taken out of school by his abusive father (Omero Antonutti) and forced into the life of a Sardinian shepherd. But his illiteracy and his father's cruel oppression only spur Gavino to strive for success as a writer and linguist. Packing an emotional punch, this gripping drama -- which won multiple awards at the Cannes Film Festival -- is based on Ledda's autobiography.
