Gerel has a mission: she wants to protect her motherland Mongolia from China’s influence. She founds an ultra-nationalistic feminist women’s group that takes action against Mongolian prostitutes and their Chinese punters. The single mother even neglects her son in pursuit of her political goals. Eventually, in search of inner peace, Gerel turns away from hatred and towards her culture and family. Barbara Off
