Plot & Details

Set in the beautiful but unforgiving plains of Mongolia, this drama concerns Someyer (Naranhuar), a young girl who lives with her grandmother Nai-Nai (Dogolesurong) in a simple hut among the local shepherds. Beiyinpalica (Tengger) is a young boy who, after the death of his mother, comes to stay with Nai-Nai and Someyer. While the two children are raised like siblings, Nai-Nai often expresses the hope that they will some day marry. When the two grow to adulthood, Beiyinpalica moves to the city to attend school and seek his fortune, while Someyer waits at home, as Beiyinpalica has promised to marry her upon his return. But when Beiyinpalica begins to pursue a career as a musician, his separation turns out to be far longer than he or Someyer anticipated, and in the meantime, she falls victim to the advances of a gruff local shepherd with a drinking problem. Tengger, a well-known pop musician in his native China, also wrote the film's musical score.
