Director(s): David Perrier, François Chayé • Producer(s): Grand Angle Productions • Coproducer(s): ARTE • Country of production: France • Format(s): HD

In Nepal and India, gathering honey is a dangerous task, but it represents a precious resource for the villagers. In the two countries, every year when the migratory bee, Apis Dorsata, arrives in their lands, some chosen few set out to confront the void to harvest the bitter honey of this giant bee. Expeditions last several days and prayers to the spirits of the forests and the cliffs allow the proud elect to reduce the number of accidents caused by the stings of the Apis Dorsata, the most dangerous bees in the world.
