SYNOPSIS:
In the isolation of the steppes lives a young couple in their yurt. Although the wife was born without eyes, she is happy. The husband tries to fashion her a pair of eyes so that he can share his world with her but neither magic, technology or Shamanism are of use. Ultimately, he decides to sacrifice one of his own eyes for her. The woman accepts tentatively at first but soon starts to revel in her newly discovered perspective.
One sleepless night, stunned by her own reflection in the mirror, she decides to steal the other eye – to be whole for once, even if only for a moment…

In der windgepeitschten Steppe lebt ein Paar in der Abgeschiedenheit ihres Zeltes. Die Frau hat bereits
seit ihrer Geburt keine Augen und obwohl sie sich daran nicht weiter stört, versucht ihr Mann ihr das
Augenlicht zu schenken. Doch weder Magie, Technik noch Schamanismus haben Erfolg. Zuletzt schenkt er ihr
eines seiner eigenen Augen. Zunächst zögerlich akzeptiert die Frau das Opfer und beginnt die Welt um sich
herum aus einer neuen Perspektive zu erforschen. Von ihrem Spiegelbild gleichzeitig fasziniert und
abgestoßen, entscheidet sie sich eines Nachts, auch das zweite Auge zu stehlen. Um einmal ganz zu sein,
wenn auch nur für einen kurzen Moment…
