After 10 years abroad, Jean goes back to his native Burgundy to attend his father’s imminent death. More than the land of Gone with the Wind, the vineyard is the main hero. The drama unfolds in the stunning backdrop of picturesque views shaping Burgundy. Hilarious scenes soothe the unbearable nostalgia of childhood, escorted by the haunting music of the extraordinary Cristal Baschet instrument. Incidentally, “Lie” has a double meaning: to unite and wine sediments.
