A family of nomads live in the high, remote mountains of Kyrgyzstan breeding horses. There is wise old Grandfather Tabyldy, his wife Karachach, their dutiful daughter-in-law Shaiyr and their sweet granddaughter Umsunai.
But their apparently idyllic life has been tough since Umsunai’s father drowned. After listening to her grandfather’s stories she’s now convinced her father has been reborn as a bird that’s watching over them. With its wistful humour, this is a warm, atmospheric, sweet natured tale about nomadic traditions that are slowly disappearing from the magnificent mountains of Central Asia.
