In voice-over and interviews Juliette de Bairacli Levy—herbalist, author, holistic veterinarian—describes her experiences living close to nature among groups of people all over the world who've traditionally shared that inclination. The principles she's lived by are conventionally but effectively illustrated by filmmaker Tish Streeten in this 75-minute 1998 documentary; they're most intriguing when they're only alluded to, as in the story of how Juliette's baby daughter came to be nursed by a goat. Observed by the camera as she tends an olive tree near her home on an island near Crete, Juliette unself-consciously commiserates with the tree, warning us about the tragic consequences of taking the natural world for granted.
