Rural Armenia: In a rustic hut, five women are baking bread. In the process, conversations arise about their lives as women in a patriarchal society, about war and genocide, and the different perspectives of the generations. The kneading and beating of the dough, which is captured in shots lasting several minutes, seems like a catalyst for coming to terms with one’s own history. The calm use of the camera combined with the quick but unrushed, routinized hand movements, consolidated over decades, creates a meditative mood that casts a spell.
