Documentary about Sidik Barzani’s frenetic efforts for twenty-five years to make the panther return to the gorgeous, but partly war-stricken Kurdish mountains.
For many years, Sidik Barzani has been hiking through the gorgeous, but partly war-stricken mountains of Kurdistan (North-Iraq). During these treks, he cares for and patches up nature wherever he can. To Kurds, the mountains are sacred. Sidik has one ultimate goal; the return of the panther to this area. Where he looks for the panther, he finds people, other animals and plants; he notes down stories, observations and memories in his diary. This documentary, with its observing style, shows how nature and man are inextricably bound.
