After winter kills hoards of his parents’livestock, 11-year old Sukhbat has to leave school, move back home and support the family. When given the responsibility by his father to tame a wild horse in a bid to win a regional race, he has to face a life ruled by unforgiving nature and tradition. No one remains unscathed after being confronted by the power of the steppe.

Veteran Polish filmmaker Robert Glinski takes a DV camera in hand to film this grim drama about „blockers,“ a generation who grew up in the gray soulless blocks of flats that mushroomed during the 1970s. The shy, introverted Tereska enrolls in a trade school dedicated to tailoring. With the help of her friend Renata, Tereska soon is smoking her first cigarette, having her furtive sexual encounter, and engaging in her first crime.
