Middle-aged Hatidže is a beekeeper and honey harvester from the remote mountain village in North Macedonia. Despite the hard and scarce life, Hatidže and her ailing mother live harmoniously with nature. But everything will start to change when a nomadic family of the Turkish rancher Hussein moves close by. They are colourful, temperamental and loud nomads with a completely different way of life and life values, and Hussein will soon see a profitable opportunity in beekeeping… From the Grand Jury Prize at 2019 Sundance to the Academy award nomination for best documentary and international feature film, Honeyland is one of Balkan’s most successful documentaries of all time.
