Film Details

Bauryna Salu

Film Synopsis

In accordance with the old nomadic tradition of bauryna salu, Yersultan was given at birth to his grandmother so that she could raise him. He grew up with resentment and was disconnected from his parents. When he turns 12, his grandmother dies and he has to move back with a family he barely knows. Yersultan’s coming-of-age process coincides with an unbearable transformation and an attempt to restore the relationship between him and his parents, especially his father.
