A tranquil, primitive story whose environment plays as important a role as its characters. Set in the Mongolian steppes, two young children, Beiyinpalica (Tengger) and Someyer (Naranhua), spend their childhood with a kind, wise grandmother (Dalarsurong). As dictated by society, men live adventurous lives and women are caretakers. Beiyinpalica's father insists the boy leave his idyllic home for veterinary school in the city. When he returns to his sweetheart, he finds things are not as they once were.
