Until 25 years ago, the Kirghiz tribe lived a quasi-Iron Age existence in the remote Pamir Mountains of Central Asia. Now, having migrated an amazing five times, they live in Turkey, a tribe divided. Employing a variety of approaches, director Ben Hopkins has created a remarkable portrait of the tribe, part historical document, part ethnographical description and part comedy about the process of filmmaking itself.
