12-year-old Galaa likes hip-hop and computer games. But he lives in a small yurt on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar. After his father’s death he deals on the local black market to support his family until, caught between modernity and tradition, aspirations and poverty, he decides to become a Lama. Can the monks help this unruly, troubled boy to be a breadwinner? A touching and intimate glimpse into life in Mongolia today, painted with the lightest of strokes. Panting through the cold, folded hills of Mongolia, is the lone figure of young Galaa. His father dead in a tragic accident, a mother who looks twice her age, he yearns for a better life. Like any youngster Galaa is drawn to wrestling, rap, junk food and online dating. Yet he does exude an urge to help others, to "protect them from pain" and the quiet ways of Buddhism may save him. The tension between old and new, godly and worldy, are embodied in this child.
