Based on Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea,” this Kazakhstani Oscar submission tells the story of Kasym, an old shepherd who lives on the remote steppes of Kazakhstan. The old man loves international soccer, horses, his flock and family and tries to bond with his grandson Erali. In the spirit of Hemingway’s original text, Kasym uses every trick up his sleeve to survive the elements and out with the wolves.
