A nomadic tribe in Southeast Iran, whose specialty is weaving “gabbeh” (Persian carpets) is dying out… On the banks of a river, an old woman who is washing one of these carpets seems to be conversing with it. The motifs of this “gabbeh” relate the love story of a young girl whose parents refuse to let her marry the man she loves. As the tribe starts a long journey across the steppe, the man follows on horseback far behind.
