Lonely and with few friends, Shiza's introduction to the world of work is to provide fighters for illegal bare-knuckle boxing. His life is drastically changed when he falls in love with a dead fighter's girlfriend. The beauty, drama and sheer scale of Kazakhstan's landscape, from the steppes to the mountains, are vividly captured in this poetic, tender and convincing film.
