Also known as Birth of a Butterfly --and set in the mountain villages of northern Iran and Azerbaijan -- this anthology film links three tales: A protective uncle cares for a teen whose mother is dying; a lame boy departs on a pilgrimage to a religious shrine; and a teacher in a remote village must become a spiritual leader when a flood threatens. Winner of the "Art Direction" award at the 1998 Fajr Film Festival.
