When the unforgiving forces of nature take their toll on humans and animals. The unexpected return of snow devastates the nomad family’s livestock. 11-year old Sukbhat is forced to leave his childhood behind. Now the hopes of the family rely on the young boy who should tame and race the wild horse.
