Four very different lost souls meet and manage to spread the hope to continue living. In this director’s first film, the exterior landscape also occupies a place of preference as the mirror of the state of mind of the figures that inhabit it. Mongolia is a country that during the recent years has seen the development of an intimate cinema in contrast to an environment that never ceases to amaze.
