The film traces the tracks of a murdered child in German-occupied Poland in World War II. The 12 year old Polish-Jewish boy David Rubinowicz and his family were murdered in a concentration camp. A school photograph of David and his diary are the only reminders of him. In his diary he wrote what happened in the period between 1939 and 1942: friends and relatives who had to hide themselves, Jewish children who could only be educated secretly, the ever-increasing hunger. His diary ends mid-sentence.

In the east of the Mongolian steppe - in Salchit, the valley of the wind - stand tents and yurts of a geological expedition. German and Mongolian specialists work there. Some of the miners and geologists live there with their families. In the middle of the steppe gives it a small German kindergarten.
But the German children played not with the Mongolian children. Between tents and yurts was an invisible border. But Claudia, a girl from Germany, six years old, had a desire. She wanted also wildly to ride through the steppe like the Mongolian boy Gantulag. Sometimes Gantulag has given her his horse Schar-mor. In this way the children became acquainted with each other, and better to understand.
