Set against the breathtaking expanse of the Mongolian steppe, this awe-inspiring documentary follows 13-year-old Aisholopan as she trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to hunt eagles, a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for centuries.¬†While there are many old Kazakh eagle hunters who forcefully¬†reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition, Aisholpan’s father Nurgaiv believes that a girl can do anything a boy can, as long as she’s determined.
