Nestled in an isolated mountain region deep within the Balkans, Hatidze Muratova lives with her ailing mother in a village without roads, electricity or running water. She's the last in a long line of Macedonian wild beekeepers, eking out a living farming honey in small batches to be sold in the closest city - four hours' walk away. Hatidze's peaceful existence is thrown into upheaval by the arrival of new neighbours, an itinerant family, with their roaring engines, seven rambunctious children, a herd of cattle and an approach to honey production and farming totally at odds with her ways.
