Eighty-two-year-old Firouzeh is not affraid of hard work. From dawn to dusk, the fiercely independent herder takes care of her beloved cows in the mountains of Northern Iran, without any access to electricity, gas or telephone. Married at a young age to an older man, she’s long been a widow, and none of her 11 children ever come to visit. But she enjoys her solitary life in harmony with nature, and won’t hear the well-meaning advice from nearby villagers that it’s maybe a time to retire. No matter the difficulties, this indomitable woman will always choose her hard-won freedom over comfort among people.
