A wonderfully atmospheric documentary portrait of an extraordinary woman.
Hatidze Muratova lives with her ailing mother in an isolated village without roads, electricity or running water. She's the last in a long line of Macedonian wild beekeepers, eking out a living farming honey in small batches to be sold in the closest city, four hours' walk away. Hatidze's peaceful existence is thrown into upheaval by the arrival of an itinerant family, with their roaring engines, seven rambunctious children and herd of cattle.
Running time: 1h50, including ads and trailers.
