Besnik is a lonely shepherd and devoted Muslim, haunted by unfulfilled love. The son of a Catholic mother and a formerly Communist father, he lives in an Albanian mountain community where, for years, Christians and Muslims have coexisted peacefully. Conflict, unfortunately, arises with the sudden discovery that the village's ancient mosque was originally a church. Caught up in the unrest, Besnik struggles to keep his multi-faith family together as the tensions around them rise.
