Filmed aboard a Hungarian ship, this is a journey upstream the Danube, recalling the vital role the majestic river played in the settlement and political evolution of central and southeastern Europe. Bridges, locks, cities and mountain ranges float in front of the camera to the noises of the ship's motor. A beautiful ode to the history and significance of the Danube's waters, which still serve as a commercial highway between nations.
