Socotra: the Forgotten Fairy Tale

We got used to live in the 21st century, to live in the always increasing pace of life. We do not know whether it is good or bad, we only know that it is inevitable. However, in this swift flow of globalization we could lose one of the main things that make us human beings – the heritage of our past. There still exist secret and magical places on our planet with the fascinating names. Pronounce and feel the word – Socotra. It gives a feeling of something far-far away and mysterious. The idea of this film is to find and keep the memory of the manifestation of the way of life that will quite soon perish in the Lethe.
