EN - Springtime in northern Albania brings the herding of goats from the lowlands up to the high mountainsides. Prek Gjoni is moving his livestock with the help of Jovalin. Will broken shoes and an umbrella suffice for the four-day walk?

NL - Late lente in Noord-Albanië. Wanneer de laatste sneeuw op de bergpas gesmolten is, trekt Prek Gjoni met zijn kudde van de vlakte naar de hoger gelegen zomerweides. Zijn een paar versleten schoenen en een paraplu genoeg om de vierdaagse tocht te overleven?

FR - Fin printemps en nord Albanie, la transhumance se déroule. Prek Gjoni déménage son troupeau avec l'aide de Jovalin vers les pâturages d'altitude. Est-ce que des chaussures usées et un parapluie suffiront pour la montée de quatre jours ?
