Baaria – La porta del vento is a Sicilian-Italian comedy film. The film seeks to recount life in the Sicilian town of Baarìa, from the 1920s to present day, through the eyes of lovers Peppino (Francesco Scianna) e Mannina (Margareth Madè).

A legend thronged with heroes … A Sicilian family depicted across three generations: from Cicco to his son Peppino to his grandson Pietro… Touching lightly upon the private lives of these characters and their families, the film evokes the loves, dreams and disappointments of an entire community in the Palermo province between the ‘30s and the ‘80s of the past century: during the Fascist period, Cicco is a humble shepherd who, however, finds time to pursue his passion: books, epic poems, the great popular romance novels. In the days when people went hungry and during World War II, his son Peppino witnesses injustice and discovers a passion for politics.

After the war, his fateful encounter with the woman of his life. A relationship opposed by one and all because Peppino has become a Communist. But the two young lovers will succeed in fulfilling their dream.
