Aligermaa - eight years old - sits on a horse as if born to do so. She lives in Mongolia together with her father, mother and her big brother and little brother. On the wide open steppes, where the wind whistles and the sky is an endless, colourful panorama, the family lives in harmony with the harsh and breathtaking nature. However, in Aligermaa's world, the horse is absolutely crucial and so everybody is eagerly awaiting the magnificent annual horse race, where all of the children will take part.
