This documentary offers a fascinating glimpse inside that culture and their two-hundred year history in Mongolia. Learn how a boy's coming-of-age is marked when he has his hair cut for the first time. Hear how the country's first, legendary eagle huntress is only now being honored. Experience a day with eagle hunters. And witness how this rich, nomadic lifestyle is now being threatened."
