The nomadic family in the Mongolian Desert expects the birth of camel calves. The last born is a white camel, which its mother, after a difficult birth, does not want to accept, does not want to feed her and does not want to take care of it. The eight-year-old boy Ugna concerned over the survival of the white camel and his family goes to the city to find a solution. He takes on responsibility, confronts his fears, tries to survive and hears the Mother Nature’s gently calls for help. The
Mongolian environment, a hard and unrelenting nature that dictates the lives of its inhabitants, tells us the story of respecting that what is greater from us, what we cannot control, but we can co-exist and co-operate with it. A three-generation family presents wisdom and insights of a child, parents, and grandparents. They pondered and pondered and decided to carry out an old custom - a musical ritual that will reconnect the white camel with its mother. Through the sounds of the played
music and singing, the force of nature and artificial or rather the artistic intervention of man intertwine for the common good – for the survival of them all.
The play is created as a theater of objects and it is a constantly evolving world, living things are turning into non-living, people into the animals, the jute canvas into the endless blue Mongolian sky ...
