"Not far from Somalia in the Gulf of Aden there is an island that time forgot. The Socotra Island is desolate, rugged and austerely beautiful. After decades of isolation a scientific expedition made an amazing archaeological discovery on the island in the depths of a sanctuary cave; a perfectly preserved wooden tablet with inscriptions in Aramean, the language spoken by Jesus Christ, dating from the third century AD. More than a third of Socotra’s fauna and flora is endemic, and most of it remains unknown. This film unveils some fascinating geographical, historical and natural aspects of an island that shelters so many treasures. "
