In the heart of Europe there is a wild mountain landscape: the High Tatra. Like a well-kept secret this mountain range towers into the sky in the north of Slovakia. Watching the nature of the High Tatra means to undertake a journey in time, back to the ages when ploughs were drawn by horses, when trees were cut with axes and hand saws, back to a European Wilderness, where there was still place for big hunters. We experience a dramatic year in the High Tatra, watching a lynx family breed their offspring and hunt chamois, a year together with the imperial eagle which belongs to the rarest birds of prey in Europe, and a summer together with shepherds and their adversaries, the wolves.
