Alpine pastures. Every summer, mountain peasants go back for three months. Jean-Marc, 70 years old, is one of them, with nearly 60 consecutive years up there. He was 11 years old when he kept heifers for the first time. Away from the comfort of home, without electricity. 60 years later, Le Temps, in collaboration with RTS Archives, made a short documentary about this guardian of a forgotten peasantry.
