A documentary film produced by German students about the foundation of a private school in Prizren, Kosovo and its chances to aid peace and development in the region. Kosovo in the year 2005 - six years after the war the future of the small region in the south of the former Yugoslavia is still uncertain. The ethnic conflict between Albanians and Serbs is not solved, the economy is weak and the educational system is ailing - thus there are little opportunities and outlooks for the predominantly young population. The German Jesuit Walter Happel is in Kosovo to carry out an ambitious project. He wants to found and head a high school and boarding school in the city of Prizren. The "Loyola Gymnasium" is to make a contribution to the improvement of the educational situation and lay a foundation for the reconciliation of the ethnic groups.
"Prizren, Transit Road" acompanies the project until the opening of the school. It aims to aid the understanding of today's situation and to go into the backgrounds of the Kosovo conflict. (c) 2006 Polytainment
