SYNOPSIS Filmed in the beautiful landscapes of Mongolia, this film tells the story of children who compete in horse races at the country’s traditional festival of Naadam.

Jealous of his elder brother, who's riding for another trainer, Byambaa convinces his father to train him to race against the older children.
