About this submission

The sun is still rising. The first rays hit the earth, a rooster crows, a woman tightens her scarf, puts on a hat, packs her tool, hammer, pickaxe and shovel in a bag. The sun rises, she and another group of women climb the mountain, the sun's rays fall on her faces and she says that this is her daily life. More characters enter, family members who talk about their efforts to put bread on the table, tell small family stories and how the stone became more important to them.
