ABOUT THE FILM

Nazim Nadirov was born into a family of exiled Kurds and Karachais in South Kazakhstan. Where the plain merges with the sky and abuts the horizon, where empires arose and died, where thousands of nomadic tribes passed. Crossroads man. An ascetic and a dervish, who learned the value of simple things early, a sage and a philosopher who eagerly absorbed biblical truths. For him, ancestral roots and the connection between generations are options with an "important" sticker. And he is one of those who know for sure: there is something that reconciles the past with the present.
