Childhood friends are united by a horse passed on between them as a prize after a wrestling match at Naadam Games. Years later as adults their nomadic community faces an urgent water shortage and their beloved horse falls ill from digesting plastic. Confronted by recent droughts at a community meeting, it emerges how differently they evaluate the problem. Batu is a man of tradition and status-quo who decides the solution as always in the past is to dig a new well. Dovchin considers the worsening impact of climate change upon their livelihood, requiring a different way of thinking with a longer term solution. Ultimately a job offer in the city lures Dovchin’s family away, but not before he creates a transformative gift for Batu out of the fallen horse who bound them together.
