Mongolia's Oscar Submission


After being ruthlessly separated during the Russian Revolution, a young boy and his horse brave insurmountable circumstances in the vast terrain of Mongolia to reunite in this heartwarming epic tale of true devotion when up against all odds.

At the beginning of the 20th century, during the Russian Revolution, a mother raises a young nomad boy to rely on himself, and presents him with the only gift she can afford: a brown horse that becomes his best friend. When the revolution reaches the vast lands of Mongolia, he finds himself separated from everything that matters to him, and sets off on an epic journey to reunite with the steed that was ruthlessly taken by Russian soldiers. Based on the award-winning poem Brown Horse by Mongolian laureate Ch. Lkhamsuren, this emotional story of resilience illustrates not only the extraordinary connection that can exist between a boy and his horse, but devotion to family and kinship with one's homeland, even when up against insurmountable odds.

Running Time: 98 Minutes. Not Rated

PLEASE NOTE: THE STEED is in Mongolian with English Subtitles.
