In 1921, a Luxembourgish cartographer helped peacefully define Albania’s borders.

In 1921, Luxembourgish cartographer Charles Schaeffer is sent to Albania as part of a border commission to gather information on the topography and the people of the region. The country has recently become independent, but it does not yet have clearly defined borders. Surveying the land, he meets a young boy whom he soon befriends. Back in Paris, Charles gets to report to the Conference of Ambassadors. At first, he is overwhelmed by the impressive architecture and the intimidating grandeur of the event. However, he soon learns that the party of self-serving diplomats has little interest in the future of the people he has just met. With no representative of Albania even present, Charles feels the need to speak up for the young country and finds the peaceful solution to the question of where to draw the urgently needed borders.
