Mongolia has an extreme continental climate with endless cold winters and short summers.

Tumur lives a nomadic life in the northwest region of Mongolia near the Russian border.
In this part of the world, you need an almost innate knowledge of survival that is essential to your family and animals’ subsistence. The skills needed to survive in such conditions have been lost in modern sedentary society.

The impending winter seemed to us like a very serious threat to life whereas for Tumur, winter was merely a passing season and autumn, a time of preparation.
