Molom, a god come to Earth in the form of an old man, finds Yonden, a young boy abandoned by a drunken father and raised by wolves, and takes him with him on a journey across the Mongolian steppes. The journey toward civilisation becomes one of understanding as Yonden starts to learn the Buddhist ways and discover the ‘most valuable pearl’ within himself.
A very good opportunity to discover Mongolia's incredible landscapes, but the movie is not all beauty. The landscapes show us both the countryside, but also the universal feelings Yonden will discover: generosity, humanity and pity.
