For generations, the Gardell family have devoted themselves to life working the land. An unexpected change in the legal conditions of the land they farm gives Tomàs and Maria no choice but to turn their farm into a bed and breakfast, where they patiently wait for guests to arrive.

Can Gardell is a fictional story with real characters; a portrait of a form of rural life that no longer seems to fit our modern times.
