Plot synopsis
Torn apart by history, the Kurdish community comes back to life each year during the Spring festival, an ancient juvenisation rite that predates Islam. At the heart of our tale, we find Senia, an elderly woman at the head of a large family living in the village of Gawilan Botan, in the region of Bardarash, about an hour’s drive from Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan. The challenge facing this film, despite the apparent contradiction, is that of describing a Muslim community in the Middle East through the portrait of a woman, a woman who rules her family with an iron hand.
