I Dance With God. Life without the sense of sight

Ali Badri, an old Kurdish man, many years ago lost his eyes when he was hunting goats. He taught himself how to sew by and now he makes Kurdish pants and sells them to make a living.

He has made enough money to buy a beautiful garden, which he shares with his beloved wife. I Dance With God is a powerful example of the struggle to survive and the determination of human spirit despite difficulties.
