“Take the audience on a beautiful, thrilling journey … and introduces them to a young woman who gives bravery a bracing, unforgettable face.” –Washington Post

For centuries in their rugged mountain villages, Mongolian nomads have trained eagles as hunting partners. And for centuries, the job had been entrusted to men. When a young woman decides that eagles are part of her destiny, a thrilling true-life adventure begins. Otto Bell’s film tells the story of perseverance and daring, set in an unforgettable locale.  (U.K.-Mongolia-U.S., 2016, 87m)
