VEINS OF THE WORLD

Original title: Die Adern der Weit

Eleven-year-old Amra lives with his family on a farm, but the family’s livelihood is threatened by miners who take over their land to find gold. Amra’s father is one of the last people bravely opposing the miners, but after his death in a tragic car accident, Amra wants to continue his father’s work and legacy by fighting for his land. Amra goes from caring about his school and getting on Mongolia’s Got Talent to caring more deeply about the issues that are affecting his community. Amra’s journey shows that anyone can make a change if they start fighting for what they believe in.
