In this cross-cultural film, Gombo, a Mongolian herder who lives a traditional life with his wife Pagma and family, and Sergei, a Russian road builder, strike up a friendship and go on the road together, headed for the city. On the way back from town where Gombo purchases condoms and a television, Mongol warriors ridicule Gombo for his trappings of civilization and the truck and television are destroyed. When Gombo returns home, Pagma and he leave their tent with the "urga," a pole with a noose used to catch cattle and mark out a space for lovemaking.
