Based on the novel Gavino Ledda: “Lingua di falce” in ”

The framework is simple: to return as Gavino Ledda from the mainland to his hometown Siligo (Sassari), he finds himself no longer cope; he is by the locals not like one of your accepted. After all, who turns his back on his homeland, exiled himself. Although he has earned in a foreign university degrees, but alienated him from his roots and of itself.

Gavino takes place in a primitive stone shepherd’s hut (a type of nuraghe ) back.

As Gavino suffering from cancer, his friend Leonardo (appearing in his delirium goblins ( amuntadores ) from the Sardinian mythology, to where he Leonardo da Vinci recognizes) as well as Greek goddesses, including Athena.

“hubris” of the movie title refers to Gavinos arrogant challenge to the higher powers; in the end they do not conform to his pride, but his newfound (Sardinia) identity.
