Set in the forests of Northern Italy where white Alba truffle is excavated with the help of canines and their resourceful masters, The Truffle Hunters unveils both the business and the human side of this mysterious trade. The documentary by Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw captures a precarious ritual constantly threatened by greed and outside influences but still somehow protected by those clever, tight-lipped few who know how to unearth the magic within nature.
