A history drama about the freedom of the soul and about the struggle against slavery and despotism. The never-ending story of love, loss and betrayal, viewed from the perspective of the Kazakh youth.
Inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s novel “The Old and the Sea”. “Shal” was Kazakhstan’s contribution to Oscar for Best Foreign Film 2014. The film does not play on the Hemingway Sea but on the desolate winter strikes in Kazakhstan where a flock of wolves awaits their change. How well is an old man, lost in a snowstorm, against these unscrupulous wildlife, does he manage to protect his beloved flock sheep – and his own life?
