This short movie is about the beautiful and unique wildlife of the Albanian Alps and the struggle to protect this National park from bad development and in the worst case: destruction.
The nothern part of Albania is the countrys poorest and least developt part and because of uncontrolled development, mismanagment and - as always - the greed of some people to make profit over nature there are various plans to build roads, hydroelectric plants and other facilities that are threatening this National park right now!

This short was done with the help of Catherine, a hotel-owner in Valbona, who is fighting passionatly against the various plans of the (local) goverment and international "aid agencys" to (mis)develop/destroy/make profit over the area.

This short is also a small call for help so that this unspoiled and amazing part of Albania can be conserved for years to come!
