Ten-year-old Amka lives with his sister and his brother in a Mongolian town. The siblings have lost their parents in a tragic accident. The older brother blames himself for this misfortune, wallows in self-pity and begins to drink. From this time onwards, young Amka has to provide for his siblings, taking care of the household, searching for food, fetching water and earning a few pennies to survive by collecting recycling bottles and running errands for other people. One day he finds a magical coin of incredible value that changes everything and puts his life upside down. However, with the desire for more, the danger of an addiction is growing.
