A coming of age story from the roof of the world

A coming of age story from the roof of the world

Boy Nomad follows a year in the life of 9-year old Janibek, who lives with his family in Mongolia’s Altai Mountains.  His first love is racing horses, but this winter, his father will bring him on the toughest journey in a nomad’s life: the winter migration.  When the film crew arrives, they discover the Altai is gripped in a “zhut”, a hard winter that blocks the passes and threatens to wipe out the family’s only possession: their animals.
