A spiritual shaman is a crucial member of the community, the one who everyone depends on when in need of moral and spiritual guidance. What happens when that shaman is a 17-year-old high school student who must balance his profound Spiritual responsibilities while also juggling another life - that of a high school student - working hard to success in the cold, callous society of modern Mongolia. But when Ze encounters Maralaa, his senses are awakened and another reality manifests.
