Abdolhassan lives with his four wives and 24 children in the Buschehr Province in the south of Iran. Together they built their own village, which has electricity, a school for the children and a hussainia, a religious assembly room. The family lives mainly from farming and animal husbandry. The tasks in the village, such as cooking and herding, are shared by the women. They are thankful for the company and help of each other, since they couldn’t manage all the work alone.
