Brief Synopsis:
Elina is the main character in this documentary film. But, who exactly is this girl Elina? All Albanians would give the same answer to this question: Elina is the symbol of the Albanian folklore, a singer with a magnificent voice! However, she has crossed the boundaries of her homeland. Her voice enchanted the people of Switzerland who proclaimed her as the greatest invention of the 20th century in Switzerland! One might ask why? Well, with her amazing artistic gift, she managed to create symbiosis between European jazz and Balkan folklore, and with her song, to praise the cultural treasury and tradition of one generation of Albanian artists in her second homeland Switzerland… Elina is a true story about the spirit of Albanian artists…
