Set in the mountains of Northern-Pakistan, the village of Shishkat is surrounded by a huge turquoise lake in between rough, steep cliffs. One day, a landslide blocked a river. In a few months, this river turned into a huge lake, which is up to 30km long. Thousands of homes and fields were flooded. Entire villages disappeared. People got dislocated. What is left are the people and their stories which are passed on from generation to generation.
