Synopsis:

Tapdig has a dream of bringing a European cow into his picturesque village in Azerbaijan to improve the life of his poor family. His decision unsettles the traditional community, as the old men see a threat in having a foreign cow among them. Its milk is full of chemicals, anyway! Even Tapdig's wife Vafa does not want to take care of such a strange beast. But Tapdig is ready to risk it all and challenges the conservative mentality of the villagers.
