Scent of Violet - Boy-e Banafsheh

Every year on the last days of winter, a wild flower grows in the heart of the forests in the north of Iran called violet with medical properties. The women of the village can pick it only before the beginning of spring and sell it. We accompany Auntie Violet, a woman from the village, during that time.
