Synopsis
Zef Sokoli is the Bajraktar of the Dukagjin - "he who holds the
flag", who calls his men together with a rifle shot and leads them to war when someone threatens his mountain villages in
Northern Albania.
He still receives members of various tribes in the house of his ancestors, mediating between them when there are arguments - or another blood feud. But his kingdom is falling apart. More and more mountain people feel the call of the valleys. Even the Bajraktar's heirs, his three sons, are down in the city looking for work and a future. But one of them must inherit his father’s legacy - it’s tradition.
Documentary about a once powerful clan-leader and reconciler in blood-feuds in the Dukagjin, northern Albania, and his family, and their search for a future between migration and tradition.
