The Land of Women is a historical drama inspired by the traditional Sardinian figure of the Coga, the village witch. Fear and superstition dominate the life of a little girl born seventh after six other girls. In a rural Sardinia at the turn of the Second World War, Fidela is, in spite of herself, the witch of the village: she cures evil spells and gives birth to everyone’s children, but never her own, because it is good that no man touches her. And when Bastiana, an illegitimate seventh daughter is entrusted to Fidela, she not only discovers the power of feeling like a mother, but will begin to question all the beliefs and traditions imposed upon her.
