In the heart of the Balkans lives a small community of people of Slavic Origin who have converted to Islam, and who have no real country of their own. What had kept them together and protected them for centuries was their home, Gora. The Kosovo war brought unrest into these fairy-tale regions. The Gorani, who fought mainly on the Serbian side, are on their own now, surrounded by an Albanian majority and their own dark memories of the war.
