The people of the 21st century are standing at a crucial crossroad between preservation and development. Can they coexist? We travel to Greece, Kosovo, and Montenegro to witness those who have found a possible answer. Greece is at the verge of major financial collapse, whilst Kosovo and Montenegro and still recovering from the war a decade ago. Instead of chasing the never ending cycle of monetary fulfilment, there are people living together with nature and perpetuating their unique and invaluable cultures. We share their answer by looking closely into their lives, their thoughts, and their perspective on life.
