Antonio, in the mountains and pristine meadows of
Molise, with tarassaco flowers in his beard, tells the story of a plant he has
studied for 30 years: Taraxacum
officinale, ordinarily known as dandelion and recognized for its many
culinary and medicinal uses, despite being generally regarded as a weed. While
gathering dandelions, he talks about the relationship between the plant and Milarepa, one of the masters of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism.
