Ulzii, a teenage boy from an underprivileged area in Ulaanbaatar, is determined to win a science competition in order to obtain a scholarship. His illiterate mother finds work in the countryside, leaving him, his brother and sister alone, despite the harsh winter. Torn between the necessity of looking after his siblings and his wish to study for the competition, Ulzii has no choice but to accept putting himself at risk in order to provide for his family.

"This is the story of the eldest son of a nomad who migrated to the capital. It is more and more difficult to be a nomad in Mongolia... I wanted to make a film about a teenager who lives in the yurt district and who dreams of a bright future, but who is greatly affected by the dynamics of his relationship with his family and by his social position. With this film, I wanted my fellow citizens to understand, feel and embrace the struggles and joys of others. When I was a child, I used to love watching films. I felt the power of the cinema and I was amazed to see how much it could change people. But I never dared tell my family that I wanted to become a filmmaker" Zoljargal Purevdash
