Nestled in an isolated region deep within the Balkans, Hatidze Muratova lives with her ailing mother in a village without roads, electricity, or running water. She’s the last in a long line of Macedonian beekeepers, eking out a living farming honey in small batches to be sold in the closest city. When an itinerant family arrives, Hatidze’s peaceful existence faces upheaval, with a series of events causing a breach in the natural order and threatening Hatidze’s means of survival.
