Rather than being a film about a river, it is about our relationship with nature.

The Isonzo has always been a borderline river. Its relatively short course links two different worlds: the Alps and the Mediterranean. It seems to have two personalities, mirrored in its two names: Soča, a feminine name, and Isonzo, a masculine one. Rich in contradictions and very beautiful, the river is also dangerous; famous for its emerald colour and the bloody battles that have taken place along its banks. Who does the Isonzo belong to? Slovenia steals it from Italy with its dams, Italy wastes its waters through a reckless irrigation regime. Construction companies plunder its gravel, and industry pollutes its waters. Amongst all these competing interests the river is forgotten. This beautifully shot film travels the length of the ever-changing river and speaks of our troubled relationship with Nature.
