This bittersweet narrative-documentary hybrid offers a precious glimpse into China’s Uighur minority. When not in school or looking after his sickly mother, young Isa spends his days wandering the fields with his best friend Kalbinur who he raises a pet lamb with. When Isa’s father sends his mother to a care facility the lamb goes missing. Meanwhile Kalbinur’s parents decide to move her away for a better education. Isa finds himself having to say many tender goodbyes.
