In Lussas, in the South of France, a small group of people has gathered in an old house which used to be the town’s grocery store. Among the vineyards and orchards of cherry trees in blossom, a business is being set up that is quite unique in the rural world: an ultra-modern platform to broadcast independent documentary films on the Internet.
