With a visually exuberant style evocative of Persian miniatures, this popular Iranian documentary provides a mesmeric account of a season's toil of saffron growers in Iran's eastern desert.

A peasant from the region leads us through the growth cycle, from the preparation of the soil to the time the saffron is sold at the market.
