Samira's father is one of the most famous film makers in Iran and this breathtakingly beautiful vision of nomadic life in Iran will hopefully introduce a wider audience to his work. Based on the life and art of the makers of Iranian carpets known as gabbehs, it portrays the imaginative power and poetry of ordinary people in their struggle for personal freedom.
