Movie Story

What makes a place hospitable, if not the opportunity to set up a young person there? How can one land in difficult places, to coexist with the wildness of the mountain, to converse with the elements and creatures of nature? In the deeper past of our country we can find answers and representations from the daily life of people who worked the earth and the living. People who toiled in places that have been turned into tourist destinations or ecological battlefields to preserve and save their identity - by people who may not know where they are on the map.

Nikos Gizas, Dimitris Geitonas and Elias Balafas, every year, at the same time, make the same appointment at the foot of Lakmonas, in the village of Syrrako, to take with their animals the familiar ascent to the mountain pastures, at altitudes exceeding 1700 meters. They consciously chose the life of the breeder, because they believe that they belong to the mountain. That is why they raise their animals with the help of sheepdogs, the knowledge of the mountain, but also luck την Because, their course, as beautiful and addictive as it is, hides dangers and adventure.

The purpose of this film is to give the portraits and a look at their daily lives, their own art of coexistence with nature, building a life where others have chosen an easier path. The story also puts in the frame, apart from Giorgos Vaitsis, Konstantinos Antonis, Costas Gerodimos, Vassilis Dondoros and another character, the most unpredictable and seductive: the mountain Lakmonas.
