​​​​​​​Karabas is a difficult man: a hard-gambling, hard-drinking, child-in-a-man's body who puts only himself first. When his first wife, Zhipara, calls to tell him she has found their long-lost son Uluk, Karabas rushes to her, much to the dismay of his much younger, pregnant second wife, Turganbyubyu. Soon the new family dynamics are stretched past their limits, and Karabas is caught between his old ways and the two women bearing his sons. Shot on location in and around the mystic World Heritage Site of the Suleiman Mountain in Osh, Kyrgyzstan, Suleiman Mountain tells the coming of age story of a grown man who must first lose love in order to find it.
