In Ulan Bator, Mongolia, the cur Baatar is shot by a hunter hired by the authorities to get rid off the dogs in the city. Its soul recalls its life, when it was a shepherd dog of a family and was abandoned in the field and walked to the city. Then it recalls when it meets a young woman that is near to have a baby.

Awesome filming. Sort of a surrealistic feel to it.
The movie is one of the best looking ones i'we ever seen. Some of the scenes in here take your breath away. The story is about a dog that dies and its spirit wanders to find its owner. But the story isn't very important here (at least to me it wasn't). It's sort of a picture collection of Mongolia. Lot's of great scenes with a surrealistic feel. Add some very good sound/music and there you have it.
I loved it. But don't watch it if you want something to cheer you up. They haven't exactly picked the nicest places. Almost everything looks deteriorated and polluted. Enjoy!
