But Bazarbai's father has his own aspirations: One day, the young boy will make him proud by following the famed eagle hunter's own footsteps. When Bazarbai's brother, Khan, is forced to leave home for Ulan Bator, Bazarbai feels deeply hurt and betrayed; he should have been the one sent into the big city. In an attempt to cheer him up, Bazarbai's father takes him to the great Eagle Festival; but the young boy is inconsolable. Suddenly, the prize eagle belonging to Bazarbai's father flies away, scared off by a photographer's bright camera flash.

Great scenery, great movie for adults and children. Its all about love, friendship, culture and traditions. The very first feature movie shot in the west of Mongolia. Impression is that looks like was made on computer. Movie was one of the main reasons for tourists visiting that region and knowing that culture.
