The Carpathians - Life in Dracula's Forests
Karpaten - Leben in Draculas Wäldern
The Carpathian mountains, Europe's largest and mightiest natural bulwark, are coming to life again. When the shepherd Vasile wanders the forests of Count Dracula, his path leads him across superb cultural landscapes formed by the struggle with Mother Nature, shaped by ancient myths and customs. There he meets Delia, a contemporary young girl with a strong desire for the «old life». Eight months later in winter, when the harsh life of the wandering shepherd comes to a brief standstill, the circle closes. Vasile marries Delia, and out there in the ice and snow, the shepherds wrap up warm again in their white furs.
