A teenage daughter takes a trip with her mother to Gobi
Dain, a fifteen-year-old girl, is rather irritated when
she hears of her mom’s plan to visit Mongolian deserts,
although it is her first-ever trip abroad. She will be stuck with her forty-seven-year-old
mother and her boring friends, in the middle nowhere.
She finds a hope when she is greeted by Batar, a
handsome tour guide whose name means “hero”, but her excitement
does not last long. All her endeavors to get closer to Batar comes to an end
when he falls off a horse and is sent away to a hospital in the city. Dain
feels completely isolated in the middle of the desert.
On the other hand, the mother Sukhee is dealing
with her own emotional turmoil. Her mind is overwhelmed with the dreams of her
childhood, and the incident that forced her to give up on her dreams. She is
distracted with the jealousy she feels for her friend, the unresolvable love-and-hate
relationship she has had with her own mother, and the anxiety she feels for her
children’s future. The more her feelings emerge, she tries harder to look
Nearing the end of the trip, a mirage appears
across the horizon. When it vanishes, the mother and the daughter are left with
a secret to confront.
