In a remote corner of the former Yugoslavia, a woman tends her wild bees on a clifftop away from the world, with no equipment to protect herself and no fear of being stung. It is a timeless image that could have taken place at any point in the last ten centuries, but it is the 21st Century and she is the last female beehunter in Europe. However, little does she know that there is a threat on the horizon from new arrivals: nomadic beekeepers who have none of her expertise or care for the preservation of bees. This amazing documentary follows the clash of past and present.
