Deep in the forests of Northern Italy resides the prized white Alba truffle. Desired by the wealthiest patrons in the world, it remains a rarefied mystery. The only souls on Earth who know how to dig it up are a tiny circle of canines and their silver-haired human companions – Italian elders with devilish senses of humour. They're guided by a secret culture and training passed down through generations. Filmmakers Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw follow this maddening cycle from the forest floor to the pristine restaurant plate.

"This witty film is a blissful acquaintance with the truffle hunters and their clever dogs. Each couple is charming in their own way. Magical characters and their lifestyle will remind about love for nature and life, about the strength that resists greed and reckless consumerism." (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
