Filmed in the beautiful landscapes of Mongolia, the film tells the story of children who compete in horse races at the country’s traditional festival of ‘Naadam.’
Byambaa is an eight-year-old boy whose village deems him too young to compete in the races. Jealous of his elder brother, who is riding for another trainer, Byambaa convinces his father to train him to race against the older children. He soon learns that love, dedication and trust are all necessary quali- ties if he is going to win, and his hope leaves a lasting impression on everyone around him.
