Bonesetter Asiyeh Karimi sees patients in her house and makes trips on horseback to offer her services. Emphasizing Auntie Asiyeh’s no-nonsense character, occasional smash cuts underscore the power of her approach to the healing arts. The film’s humour and keen eye allow for a warm and nuanced excursion. A sequence at the teahouse demonstrates Asiyeh’s counselling role: “You didn’t fall off the steps,” Asiyeh informs one woman, accompanied by her husband. Through persistence and gentleness, Asiyeh finds out some uncomfortable truths.
