Most able-bodied men leave the poverty-stricken former Soviet country of Tajikistan to seek employment in Russia, where they can earn eight times as much as at home. This leaves the small, mountainous landlocked country's tough-as-nails women to eke out a living tending cattle in the mountains. Join RTDoc as we explore the lives of these women as they work collectively to take care of cows, make dairy products and look after children. We'll also meet men who have been compelled to work abroad but whose hearts remain with their families and simple pastoral lives.
