In a sublime cinematic rendering, the director brings to the surface the stories hidden by the myths of the places, going beyond the facts and data recorded chronologically, revealing the changes of the times, but managing to keep their spirit.
The film was released with the occasion of Romania’s 100th Jubilee at Astra Film Festival, and at the special screenings that took place in the presence of the director on location on Transalpina, at Sibiu, Săliștea Sibiului, Șugag, Novacii Gorjului and Oasa Monastery, the venues were packed and the spectators were driven by emotions on the mysterious path of the legends behind the historical facts.
