I take care of them.

Good morning, teacher!

- How are you?

- I'm fine!

I feel good.

I have good grades at school...

because I want to be

a doctor someday.

But right now, all I can think about

is becoming an eagle huntress.

Is dinner ready?

Place the spoons. Bring the onions.

May God bless you.

How are your classes going?

I wrestled everyone in my class...

including all the boys...

and won.

One boy was sitting

and looking at me as if he was frozen.

Quick, feed this tough child.

Since she is serious...

I figure, let her bring up her own eagle

and train it.

It is said that legendary eagle hunters...

have captured their eaglets

in these mountains.

May we be so lucky!

There it is!

Oh my God, two eaglets in one nest.

Some good looking eaglets right there.

Do you see, my child?

There, next to that yellow stone...

there are two eaglets.

They used to say the eagles

were strong enough...

to bring you little

mountain goats.

Do you see them?

We're going to have to

climb up that side...

and then descend from the top.

This is going to be tough.

We'll need to use the rope.

Do not be afraid, okay?

It's a strong knot!

Should I climb down here?

Toward that outcrop over there?

Just be careful, use your arms

to steady yourself.

Yep, that's the way.

Hold on tightly.

In the name of God.

Never let go of the rope.

Don't worry. Okay, go.

- Give me some more rope, Dad.

- Back, back. Steady.

Grab onto the stone tightly.

Don't be scared.

Keep on moving down.

It's getting tough there.

Let the rope out, Dad.

Give me some slack!

Just hold on tight.

Hold tight I said.

Yeah, yeah.

Go slowly. No more slip-ups!

More rope!

That's enough.

Are you holding on tight?


Look! There they are!

I'm getting close!

Still more rope, Aisholpan?
