Girls in Sistan and Baluchestan province of Iran have to go far away from village to bring water from a pond because of the lack of water. However, most of these ponds are the habitat of a kind of Iranian crocodile called “gando” that attacks humans causing the loss of legs or hands for most of the children of the province. Here people still take good care of the gandos because they believe that “where there is a gando there is water”. This documentary tells the story of a 9 years old girl named Hawa whose hand has been eaten by a gando.
