Aisholpan is thirteen and wants to be an eagle huntress. This traditional role is passed down from father to son, however, Aisholpan's father believes she can be equal to any boy. This documentary takes a fascinating look at the life of a nomadic family on the mongolian plains.

The savage drama of the remote Altai mountans in central and east Asia makes an arresting backdrop to this
life affirming, stunningly photographed documentary. Wendy Ide, The Observer
