Palm-fringed beaches, peaks over 3000 meters high, a unique underwater world and forests where undiscovered species still live: East Timor is a country full of untouched nature. Cut off from the rest of the world for decades, a rare treasure has been preserved here and its animal and human inhabitants have developed their very own rhythm of life.

Written and directed by Mona Haffner

A production by K22 on behalf of NDR in cooperation with ARTE
