Besnik is a lonely shepherd and devoted Muslim, haunted by unfulfilled love.

Up here, Christians and Muslims have found a way to co-exist peacefully. Even after the discovery that the old mosque used to be a church, the calm of daily life can be preserved - with Besnik's help. After the death of his father, however, drastic changes threaten Besnik's multi-faith family and the shepherd is forced to seek his own path.
