Synopsis: On a tenuous border with China, the vanishing medieval culture of Mustang is where a man’s wealth is measured in horses and riding is as elemental as breathing. TALKING TO THE AIR tells the story of the ascent of civilization in the high Himalaya and turns a lens on issues of globalization, fragile border politics and the precarious future for the horse in this remarkable region.

The world’s most magnificent horsemen face an unsure future in one of the planet’s last great equine cultures. The Tibetan Buddhist region of Mustang in the high Himalaya is the Last Forbidden Kingdom. Their unique heritage and remarkable spiritual bond with the horse is under threat.
