In Apuan Alps, Tuscany, Italy, lies the largest marble basin in the world. For over 2,000 years, people have been querried high-quality marble. But for every inch of marble a price has to be paid. It is a struggle against nature and the elements, against the mountain and its hazards. Only the "Men of Stone" can fight this struggle. We follow them managing three different quarries in the high mountains of the Apuan Alps Regional Park and fueling a multimillion-dollar industry that contributes to the economic well-being of the whole region. Their instincts and abilities carry on a process that is an ever-renewing challenge, surrounded by lunar landscapes and breathtaking views.
