Synopsis

For countless generations the Valbona River has carved its way through the Albanian Alps, leaving its mark on the lives of its people. At turns gentle, powerful or playful, the river moves through the valley carrying songs, childhood memories and legends of old, but something is stirring which threatens to halt its flow.
