It is a world, surrounded by deserts, made of high mountains bordered by narrow plains and estuaries. And in the middle of these lands, is the “Mediterranean”.


This part of the world has been the cradle of a human civilization that today has a global influence.


It is also the birthplace of three major religions. The scene of the planet’s most notable social, cultural and human fracture, while being the world’s most densely populated region. The film is not concerned with a mere inventory of human battles and strife, but takes us on an aerial journey to understand the role of the natural world.
