The last in a long line of Macedonian wild beekeepers, Hatidze Muratova ekes out a living, working gently without netting or gloves and always leaving half the honey for the bees. But when a new family moves in with roaring engines, seven rowdy children, 150 cows, and a profit-minded approach, her life and the bees’ future are suddenly on the line. This sumptuous, intimate film is a glimpse of a disappearing way of life and a tender portrait of the delicate balance between humankind and nature.
