In the past few years, American actress Eliza Dushku, who is of mixed Danish and Albanian ancestry, has become passionately interested in and connected to the country of her father's ancestors. In Dear Albania, Eliza and her brother Nate travel to Albania where they explore 15 unique cities throughout the country. They discover Albania's present, its past and hear about its hopes for the future. For the siblings, the voyage to their ancestral home becomes a cultural, historical and personal discovery. Dear Albania tells two stories: the journey of Albania through centuries of oppression, conquest, and civil strife to triumph over Communism and its emergence as a vibrant modern state; and the journey of one family, the Dushkus.
