Through striking images, this short film with gives us access to a culture that is slowly crumbling. It tells the story of Le Keshvar Khale, a lonely old woman, who is the only one living in Chasham, a small village in northern Iran. She earns her living by gathering medicinal plants and raising her cattle. She is also one of the few living people to weave the gelij, a weave unique to this village which, according to legend, was taught to the community by a fairy living in a nearby cave.
