A woman had a great love for her cow. In order to feed her, she used to collect grass from a very far place, which was quite tiring. One day, one of her children decides to sell the cow without telling her. The woman is overwhelmed with deep sadness and she starts painting to overcome her pain. Tirelessly, she paints on everything, on the walls of her house, on pumpkins... Today is her son's monthly visit. He brings her paper and paint. The.films reveals how Mokarrameh's imaginative world merges with reality. All her drawings tell a story: her own life, her husband's concubines, the village women's daily lives, and their work.
