9-year old Janibek is a young nomad boy living in the Mongolian Altai. A nomad life which requires tending to livestock at an early age and constant seasonal migration makes the experience of being young short-lived. Janibek’s father wishes his son to enjoy his precious youth as much as he can while learning the traditional ways of life and survival. Like his father, Janibek hopes of becoming a shepherd, and his love for horse riding enables him to become an outstanding young man who carries out the mission of herding livestock over the harsh winter mountains. This film captures the passage of nomad tradition from father to son, from one generation to another. (SEO Do-eun)
