1,300 years ago, the eastern part of present-day Germany between the Elbe and Oder rivers was almost deserted. But then strangers from the east, Slavs, enter the fertile land. They settle in the 7th century AD. Who were these people who left traces everywhere in Eastern and Southern Europe?
The documentary follows a group of Slavs between the Elbe and Oder rivers through the centuries, follows them in various skirmishes, observes their customs and rites, and shows their survival skills and their struggle for their own identity against the background of great historical upheavals.
A film by Pepe Pippig and Wolfgang Albus
