At 27, Khongoroo, a medical doctor, grapples with what it means to remain in Mongolia’s capital Ulaanbaatar what is lost and what is gained. She misses the beautiful but remote East Taiga, where two dozen families live in a tight-knit reindeer-herding community. The city has opportunities the countryside does not and she must decide whether to risk the health of her three-year-old daughter in the polluted capital, or send her to her grandmother in the Taiga. It’s easy to become engrossed by her moral dilemma. A fascinating fly-on-the-wall look at life in rural Mongolia with its breathtaking scenery.
