Abbas Kiarostami presents an isolated village in Iran. It's a quaint picture postcard that you'd hardly see for yourself. A documentary crew wants to capture an unusual burial ritual. In waiting for the moment we observe the beauty and charm of the community. Should they stay on and on to film what they came to see?
