In the unique scenery of the Swiss mountains of Valais, seven friends - aged 25 to 40, which life has brought in various directions, look for an activity in common. Eliane, an 80-year-old beekeeper, decides after the death of her husband, to sell her apiary to these enthusiastic and inexperienced young men. They ask her, if she could help to take care of the bees, which Eliane accepts happily. Bees fascinate a multitude of people, so also: Jean, who is newly retired and choses to dash into the adventure of beekeeping. Christelle, who lost 50 % of her hives during last winter. Jean-Claude, who produces organic honey. Françoise, who decided to work on a political level for the bees and Jean-Daniel, who is a researcher. Professionals share their philosophies, scientists their facts, the beekeeper apprentices discover the challenges of a fascinating microcosm and the bees bustle to keep the hive at 35 °C, struggling to survive in an increasingly dangerous environment.
