[ Logline ]
During WWII, two injured soldiers, one Japanese and one Russian, are rescued and nursed back to health by a Mongolian goat herder. Instead of cherishing their salvaged lives, the two men seek to murder each other at every opportunity, much to the horror of their kind-hearted saviour
[ Story ]
It is World War II and on a remote farmstead on the grasslands of Inner Mongolia, an ageing goat herder (Norjmaa) lives alone in a land which has been evacuated by the local population fleeing from the fighting. One day, Norjmaa witnesses a battle raging nearby and later she finds two soldiers, one Japanese, one Russian, both badly injured and close to death. She takes them into her yurt and tends to their wounds, thereby saving their lives. However, as the two enemies begin to recuperate and regain their strength, each man seems to have only one thing on his mind - murdering the other. Norjmaa has her own personal reasons for hating the war. How can she make these men see reason when there only seems to be blind hatred in their hearts and none of the three can speak a word of the others' languages? 
In a series of flashbacks, we learn that Norjmaa has war wounds of her own in need of healing. Betrothed as a young woman to the dashing Hanggai, she has waited for decades for her lover to return from war. She has grown gray-haired living a solitary life tending her goats on the Hulunbuir grasslands, but she clings to the hope that one day Hanggai might return and that men might put aside the hatred and madness of war. 
Meanwhile Balgar, a childhood friend of Norjmaa's, has grown old himself, waiting for Norjmaa to give up on Hanggai and accept him as her husband.
