Director's Note
This is not a story but a true episode in my family. I'm not relating my grandfather's magical life, I'm just honestly showing a herdsman's new life. Her life is hard, but she is also content. In their one hundred years, some things changed, some things remained the same. But this is their true life, one that may continue for another hundred years.
