The heart of Romania beats in the middle of the carpathians, in that Transylvania known throughout the world as the setting of the Dracula legend. But inexpugnable fortresses and mysterious castles must not hide the most ravishing truth about Transylvania: it is one of europe last pristine lands. A wilderness which lynx, wolf and bear seem to protect like the rampart of a citadel.
Transylvania may look timeless but in that apparently unalterable landscape men and women toil and fight to protect a delicate balance. But how long will they survive? A hike through the dense forests of Apuseni mountains among the wild bears which are the emblem of Romania, an encounter with the peasants and craftsmen who shape this land. This film is a delicate and sensitive picture of a region whose secrets are not all unveiled.
