DIGGER is a contemporary Western about a native farmer who lives and works alone in a farmhouse in the heart of a mountainous forest in northern Greece. For years, he has been fighting with an expanding industrial monster, which has been digging up the forest, disturbing the lush flora and threatening his property. Yet, the greatest threat comes with the sudden arrival of his young son, after a twenty-year estrangement. The two become enemies under one roof and confront each other head on, with nature as their only observer. To keep the muddy ground from being pulled out from under their feet for profit, father and son must dig deep into it.
