Ajdar, native of Kyrgyzstan near Lake Issy-Kul, has worked in Paris for years where he lives with his charming French fiancée Isabelle. After many demands from his family, he decides to travel to his homeland to show his fiancé the places where he came from. However, he does not have the faintest idea of the difficulties he will have to face. By now he has become a European man, whereas his family and fellow countrymen have kept a traditional lifestyle. His family expects Ajdar to honour tradition and his mother thinks it is high time for him to get married. She has already prepared a trunk with the trousseau for the future bride. Ajdar is not in favour of the idea of getting married and pretends that the naive Isabelle is just a friend, and thanks to the communication difficulties she unwillingly plays that role. Fascinated by the exotic beauty of nature and landscape, Isabelle remains initially unaware of Ajdar’s deep existential dilemma. Then comes the moment when they both have to face up to and solve the contradictions of their lives and identity, and find themselves weighing up the pros and cons of their choices.
