In a farmhouse in southern Italy, an old woman, the matriarch of an Italian family, dies. Her husband summons their 3 sons, each of whom are facing difficult personal problems, back to their farmhouse.
Raffaele (Philippe Noiret) is a successful judge in Rome whose thoughts are wrapped up in a case involving the terrorist assassination of one of his colleagues. Rocco (Vittorio Mezzogiorno) works for a delinquent boys' home in Naples, and Nicola (Michele Placido) is a militant Turin factor worker whose marriage has just broken up.
Gathered at the farm, they try to comfort their father (Charles Vanel), communicate with each other, remember the past, and think about the future. The sons encounter the past and think about what may come: Raffaele imagines his death, Rocco dreams of lifting the youth of Naples out of violence, drugs, and corruption, and Nicola pictures embracing his estranged wife. Meanwhile, the old man and his young granddaughter explore the rhythms of the farm and grieve together for his beloved wife.
