Macedonian documentarians Ljubomir Stefanov and Tamara Kotevska paint an intimate portrait in brilliant detail of Hatidze Muratova, perhaps the last remaining rural female beekeepers in Europe. Hatidze lives with her ailing mother in an off-grid Macedonian mountain settlement, embracing the graceful simplicity of her fulfilling life in nature alongside the bees, following a golden rule of always leaving half the honey for their nourishment. Her way of life is threatened, however, when modern farmers began to take over the landscape.
