This film looks at the Islamic Kazakhs of Xinjiang - an autonomous province in northwestern China - in particular the nomadic Naiman tribe. Following these famous horsemen on their annual migration to summer pastures in the Tian Shan Mountains, the film looks at the way in which they organize their affairs and the schooling of their children, while exploring how the revolution has affected their traditional way of life. Amid the Chinese policy of moving as many Han as possible from the overcrowded central areas of China to the less populated border areas such as Xinjiang, the continued cultural independence of the Kazakhs is an open question. This program not only gives an understanding of the Kazakh society, but also offers insights into the conflicts of domination and independence.
