The story of The High Sun is an original take on the classic Romeo and Juliet story. The premise is the same – two young people from two neighbouring villages of dierent religions and ethnicities fall in love. But the people around them do not consider their love to be appropriate, and are deadly set against their union. The story is divided into three parts, each taking place ten years apart, following six dierent characters over three consecutive decades. The same stories repeat themselves from one decade to the other and it seams impossible to overcome a deeply-rooted hatred.
