Drama. Life is fast and changes every day. But there are things in our life that have always been there, that are there and will remain there. There are people who exist outside religion, outside society and outside time; people who know much more about life than other mortals: these are shamans, sorcerers, magicians. People of Nature, Spirit, Force. ìBaksyî in Kazakh means ìshamanî. The film tells about the destiny of the old Aidai. Like all Kazakh shamans, she can tell where the stolen cattle is, she can treat people, she can find peopleís lost souls...
