The universe was created with four elements: Fire, Earth, Water and Air. The four of them are seen as sacred by the Tajik people. Achaglon is about the traditional ritual performed by the Tajik during times of drought.
The film is based on four verses of a song and on the stories told by the inhabitants of various regions in Tajikistan. A ritual lost a long time ago comes back to life under our eyes.
