Malfatano, Sardinia. Costa di Teulada. A coastal tract of wild intact beauty where busy Tuerredda beach is located. Nearby stand the furriadroxus (derived from the word furriài meaning to retreat or to dwell), typical isolated dwellings of the area around Malfatano. All the inhabitants of these houses are unmarried men over the age of 60 years who represent the last remnant of a community held together by animal breeding, subsistence farming, and mutual assistance but marked by solitude and marginalization as well. The film describes the microcosm of these men’s lives in August when tourists fill the beach.
