Synopsis

In the Darhat valley in northern Mongolia, the horses of nomadic tribes are disappearing. Bandits steal horses from their owners, and sell them for a few rubles in Russian slaughterhouses. But Shukhert, a vigilante Darhat horseman, pursues them relentlessly, all the way to the edge of Mongolian taiga, on the border with Siberia.

Documenting the lifestyle of the last nomads for over ten years, director and ethnographer Hamid Sardar is invited to follow Shukhert on his eternal journey. Between tribal rivalries, smuggling and gold searching, Hamid explores what horse stealing means in Mongolia today.
