Director: Olga Korotkaya
There is a place on Earth where people sing in their own, magical way. Tuvin “khoomei” is the most famous overtone singing in the world. But Tuvins believe only men should sing. The main female character of the film tries to change this tradition – she wants to encourage girls, to help them overcome their fear and teach them singing.
