A wonderful portrait of pastoral life in the remote hills of Eastern Bosnia and the day-to-day life of two women who worship nature.
The documentary depicts the bittersweet life of two grannies living isolated on the hills of Eastern Bosnia. Nature is the entity with which grannies speak, listen to, and respect. The film emphasizes the intangible cultural heritage, through the presentation of chants and rituals for taming the adverse weather, hail and storm. It reflects the simplicity and purity of their way of life, as well as their painstaking work. The action of the film is the everyday life in the countryside, which shows the caring and intimacy of the grannies, both in their mutual relations and in the relationship with nature. The poetic tone of the frames relies on references from genre scenes of realism paintings.
