After working as crop duster in South Africa for the past 10 years, Rob Vandenbergh returns to Belgium to bury his deceased father. He also inherits the 'Zuidflank', a fertile piece of land in the region of Limburg known for its exquisite Chardonnay wines. Instead of selling the land and taking off again, Rob decides to stay and cultivate his own wine. But that doesn't go down well with Mark Deweerdt, a former friend of Rob’s and a successful wine maker himself. Driven by power and the desire to outrun each other, their animosity reaches its climax.
