"Becoming a Man in Siberia" follows the epic ordeals of young men who live in different countries of the giant Siberia.
Each will face a grueling initiation quest to make the difficult passage to manhood. If they fail, they will remain children forever.
In Siberia, Edik has to face wolves to protect his 4000 reindeer herd during the spectacular migration to the Great North, whereas Altagan and Dsolbo must travel across the desert of Mongolia to find precious green pastures to feed their entire camel herd during the winter.
Two ordeals, each for the same goal:
