Irish writer and mountaineer, Dermot Somers, travels with a group of nomads on a spectacular mountain journey across Iran.

Dermot’s hosts are a family of shepherds and they travel 400 kms on foot across a forgotten corner of this extraordinary country. Stunning landscapes and a forgotten tribe reveal aspects of Iranian life almost never seen in the west. To shoot this series, the film crew had almost unprecedented access to one of the most secretive countries on Earth.
