A woman utilises ancient beekeeping traditions to cultivate honey in the mountains of North Macedonia. When a neighbouring family tries to do the same, it becomes a source of tension as they disregard her wisdom and advice.
This lushly beautiful documentary was nominated for the 2019 Oscar for Best Documentary and a host of other awards.
