Up here, different religions have found a way to co-exist peacefully – Besnik is a devout Muslim, his mother was a Catholic, and his brother converted to the Orthodox faith in Greece.

After the death of his father, however, drastic changes threaten Besnik's family, and the shepherd is forced to forge his own path.
