Teenage shaman ZE falls in love with MARLA. Ze faces the fickle nature of life, love, and growing up when Marla rejects his affections. His personal crisis affects the fragile yurt-district community. An intimate and sober portrayal of adolescence set in contemporary Ulaanbaatar.
Ze is a timid 17-year-old shaman. He studies hard at school to succeed in the cold, callous society of modern Mongolia, while communing with his ancestral spirit to help those in his community.
But when Ze encounters Marla, his senses are awakened and another reality manifests.
