Merian C. Cooper Ernest B. Schoedsack Written by Terry Ramsaye Produced by Merian C. Cooper Ernest B. Schoedsack Starring Merian C. Cooper Ernest B. Schoedsack Marguerite Harrison Haidar Khan

The film highlights the extreme hardships faced by nomadic peoples, as well as the bravery and ingenuity of the Bakhtiari on their migration in search of grass, which meant abundant seasonal pasture for their animals. Grass documents the caravan route from Angora (modern-day Ankara, Turkey) to the Bakhtiari lands in Persia (western Iran in the Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Provinces and the eastern part of Khuzestan). The film then follows Haidar Khan as he leads 50,000 of his people and countless animals on a harrowing trek across the Karun River and over Zard Kuh, a subrange of the Zagros Mountains.
