Life for Alexis Tremblay and his family is dedicated to the soil, following the tradition of ancestors who settled in Québec along the shores of the St. Lawrence over three hundred years ago. In this existence the church plays an important part, the blessing of the seed each spring being a sacred ritual passed on from one generation to another. We follow this French Canadian family through the busy autumn days as they bring in the harvest and help with bread baking and soap making. Winter sees the children revelling in outdoor sports while the women are busy with their weaving, and, with the coming of spring young and old alike repair to the fields once more to plough the earth in preparation for another season of varied crops.
