(from Birds)   Become one with the way – be the way. By accumulating these interviews of the mountain spirit, TV Izard gradually will highlight the peculiarity of mountain areas, semi-desert, wild or semi-domesticated, where “unexpected” is rich in meaning, simplicity and learning about ourselves, what surrounds us and in us.
