Synopsis:

For several weeks in February 2002, cotton producers in Andalusia maintained a pulse with the Ministry of Agriculture, which sought to regulate the sector through liberalizing the planting of this crop. More than 2,000 tractors and combine harvesters coming from all producing areas filled up Sevilla. This is the chronicle of the struggle for the defense of a crop and a production model that has managed to turn cotton into the livelihood of thousands of families in the Andalusian countryside.
