Synopsis: The Pakhraddin village, driven by the oppressive Goloshchekin government's cattle confiscations, embarked on a southward migration that plunged them into turmoil within the Turkmenistan deserts. The family's patriarch resolved to lead his people back to the Karakalpak city of Kungrad, a desperate bid for salvation. Abandoning their yurts amidst the vast sands, the villagers undertook an arduous journey on foot, returning to the alien city, where an uncertain destiny lay in store for them.
