In a small mountain village in rural Serbia people stood up against the construction of a small hydropower-plant which threatened to leave an entire community of 25 elderly people without water and ultimately extinguish all forms of life in one of the most famous regions in Serbia for its water-rich and pristine environments. Cattle breeders, goatherds, farmers and foresters whose lives depend on water sat for 120 days on the barricades to protect the entrance to their village. Day and night, they took turns keeping the fire on. On the day of the unexpected arrival of the investor when the church bell rung, they stood determined to prevent the beginning of the plant construction. Fear, cold and age did not stand in the way of their determined unity to guard their beloved river.
