Deep in the woods, lost high in the mountains, there lives an old man with an old woman and his daughter with her family — her husband Orozkul. With them also lives their grandfather's seven-year-old son named Shambala, which means "Candle boy" or "Boy radiating light". Shambhala firmly believes in the ancient myth of the Mother Deer, who saved the last baby of their kind Bugu from enemies and nursed him with her milk. And although people eventually exterminated the deer, the boy believes that someday the deer will still return to their land.
