Urumchi - capital city of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China and home to the Turkic people, the Uyghurs, is the departure point for this film. The city, which is marked by the ambivalence between its Uyghur tradition and global modernity, is home to the musician Perhat, who like many other musicians from the region had no ideas about ever leaving the city.

A film about music that, just like the city, is caught up in the tension between tradition and modernity, about friendship that needs no words and about boundless optimism, which made not just one dream come true.
