Olma Djon tells the journey of Bolot, a father who, despite his efforts, doesn’t succeed to communicate with his daughter Sholpan (7) who refuses to speak, as a result of communication problems in their family: He is desperate when a Shaman Woman comes to help. Seduced by her gentle singing, he goes over the fence of his own yard. He finds himself in a snowy apple tree orchard, his secret garden, frozen for so many years. Following the singing shamanic voice, BOLOT crosses his own unconsciousness, he meets his ancestors and finally, his Mother who is waiting for him under the Apple Tree. This reconciliation gives him the capacity to communicate to his daughter – Love.
