An old man lives peacefully with his granddaughter in a small house on the banks of a river in a village in Central Asia. One day his daughter arrives and persuades him to sell the house and move to the city to live with her. He reluctantly agrees and moves to the city with his granddaughter. For both it is a one-way trip without hope of returning home...

"It is not an average or ordinary ephemeral type of entertainment: the film and its characters flow with a viscosity that tests the will of the audience, but rewards those who endure the languishing honesty of a setting it staunchly remains loyal to."
Paul Keelan
