"Socotra, the hidden land" is the story of a lost ancient and extraordinary land... every step you take on Socotra is a discovery. To move through its coastal areas and unique landscapes, is to cross a frontier in time, an amazing journey that can only be made once as, afterwards, nothing is the same again.

The documentary is a reflection of the life and customs of this isolated society, told by some of the most remarkable characters on the island, who tell us in their own words about their spirit, their future and their daily struggle to preserve their traditions in the face of globalization. /
