Filmmaker Jean-Henri Meunier pays homage to the people of his rural hometown in this witty documentary. Meunier left Paris to move to the small country village of Najac in 1995, and took to interviewing the townspeople with his video camera, allowing the many unusual characters to speak for themselves. As Najac faces an uncertain future after French authorities decide to open a nuclear waste disposal site in the town, Meunier offers his recorded memories of his neighbors, including a winemaker
