A family race to build a house before their land is confiscated.

Deadpan humour overlies melancholy in this beautiful film from Kazakhstan. Losing their flat, a family of two brothers and a young sister camp out on their plot of land, only to be told they will lose it if a house isn’t immediately constructed on the site. So the fractious siblings must unite in a common cause, borrowing or stealing tools and supplies to stake their lasting claim.
