Two couples, one Russian and one Kazakh, live side-by-side in relative harmony in a beautiful yet semi-desolate region of the Great Steppe. But when the fair–skinned Russians give birth to a boy of decidedly darker skin, fifteen years of suspicion and acrimony arises between them and can only be resolved by an ironic twist of family and fate. At times darkly somber, at other times tender and wistful (and buoyed throughout by a soundtrack of folk-inspired melodies) writer/director Marat Sarulu draws on Kazakhstan's epic history to create a gritty and deeply compassionate tale of humor and cultural insight.
