Mashti Esmaeil spends most of his time in his farm where he cultivates rice, located within a three-hour walking distance from his house. With an uplifting degree of independence, despite his blindness, he proves in this affectionate portrait to be a serene and wise man with an incredible sense of humour. A gracious tribute to a certain predisposition to happiness.
