牧马人哈斯木独居荒山牧场,与鹰相伴,在沉静的日子里等待春天。他在山下小吃店相中逃家少年叶尔肯,以三个月为期,聘他帮忙牧场杂务。菜鸟牧童叶尔肯只想数日子、等下山,却意外拾得一只无主幼马,不顾哈斯木反对,以工钱和性命来保护幼马。当下山的日子一天天靠近,两个等待的人,关系也渐渐起了变化……

《太阳照常升起》剪辑师张一凡,这次剪而优则导,重返童年生长的家乡新疆,率领来自伊犁的哈萨克族编剧与演员,透过长镜头大远景的镜头语言,将皑皑山巅的美景,化作对牧马人勇敢、自由精神的礼赞。牧马人与逃家少年的性格冲突,剑拔弩张的世代隔阂,背后其实是快速都市化冲击传统生活型态的余波荡漾;而片中两人一鹰的山居等待,正蕴酿着世代间沟通的解方。

This is the story of the inn owner Hasim and his young employee Elken. They provide travellers with horses on the vast isolated Kazakh Steppe. Hasim is silent and cold while Elken is chirpy and passionate. Despite the clash between their personalities, they begin to understand each other. As Elken learns more and more about the Kazakhstan traditions from Hasim, Elken’s enthusiasm slowly melts Hasim’s coldness.
