In the picturesque Jura mountains, eco-farmers Pauline and Alex want to set up a wind turbine to finally become self-sufficient. But the project makes Pauline question her choices. Pauline and Alex have put their love, ideals and work into their life project, the eco-farm. The couple is now ready to take the step to total independence and produce their own electricity. The arrival of technician Samuel, who is to install the wind turbine, deeply unsettles Pauline and upsets the couple and their values. Bettina Oberli's first French feature film "is beautifully illustrated and strongly cast. No need for big words, WITH THE WIND is for long stretches a very quiet drama that relies entirely on the power of its images." (film-reviews.com)
