    • Synopsis
    • They are going to slaughter a sheep for a feast before dark. Nomads do the slaughtering themselves. But before its death, the sheep was able to live and graze in the wild. The film is tranquil in rhythm and very powerful esthetically as the setting sun paints the Mongolian steppe red. The film climaxes as a young girl washes the sheep´s blood off her hands.
