Tuva, located in the extreme environment at the center of Asia between the Siberian forests and the central Asian desert, is the setting for this exploration of the role of the shaman in ancient Tuvan culture. Centering on the shaman Moon Heart, the documentary explores his importance in the daily life of Tuvan culture. As he explains, "I dedicate my life to my gentle people who believe that I am the link between man and God; I am a poet, a priest, a healer, a foretell, a teacher, but mostly I am their friend."
