Two lovers share an idyllic night of bliss together before being violently separated by fate in director Damir Manabai's grim drama. Families and tribes of the Kazakh Steppe are deeply rooted in ancient tradition. Yershor is a young brave from the Adai tribe, and Zhemal is a ravishing beauty from the Zhaumits tribe. The Adais and the Zhaumits are sworn enemies, and to challenge that rivalry is to face almost certain doom from both tribes. Despite the fact that they both remain well aware of the consequences their forbidden love can have, Yershor and Zhemal throw caution to the wind and follow their hearts. In the aftermath, Zhemal endures humiliating torture at the hands of her own family, and Yershor is incarcerated and prepared for a much more savage punishment. But the pain of punishment is only physical, and in love one can summon the power to endure any amount of suffering. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
