A poetic portrait of a Persian watchmaker, whose philosophical musings on his craft invite us to reflect on how we engage with time in a globalized, fast-paced world. Moving between his colorful pared-down home and the wind swept marshes of East London, we discover the horologist's ascetic and beautiful private world.
