    • Synopsis
    • Pre-teen Galt returns to his nomadic family after the uncle that adopted him dies, leaving him no choice but to return to his so-called motherland. After a period of adjustment, he learns to get on with his parents, particularly dad Badam, and older brother Tomor. At the same time Badam is preparing his herd of horses for a vaguely prestigious Naadam race contested among the surrounding herders.
      Galt takes an instant shine to a wild yellow colt that wanders into the pack one day, and asks his brother to help him train the animal for the upcoming race. The horse is considered a good omen, and sure enough Galt wins. Other than a minor rivalry between Badam and another herder that wants the horse, or just doesn’t want Badam to have it, that’s the extent of the action.
