In the poor Sicilian village of Aci Trezza, the fisherman have been exploited for generations. Tired of the endless cycle of poverty, a young soldier returns home from war and convinces his family to strike out on their own. Tragically, his plan to change the system is met with a cruel blow that pushes them even further under water. Shot on location with non-professional actors, Luchino Visconti?s LA TERRA TREMA remains a masterpiece of Italian cinema.
