Synopsis

12-year-old Erken is living with his single mother, a provocative, local beauty. One day, a hunter comes from the steppe and spends the night with his mother. In an act of rebellion, the boy steals the hunter’s horse and his weapon, and plunders a local shop. To avoid Erken’s imprisonment and to help his mother, the hunter takes the boy away with him into the wild. What follows is a wonderful voyage of initiation to the hunter’s way of life and the secrets of nature, as well as the boy’s journey to manhood.
