You might not be able to locate it on a map, but Kyrgyzstan has plenty to offer – chiefly, this new film by writer, director and leading man, Aktan Arym.

Svet-Ake (Arym) is a village electrician who uses his skills to bring light and warmth to his poverty-stricken neighbours by illegally tapping into a nearby power station. However, when Svet-Ake’s scheme is uncovered by state officials, the Robin Hood of electricity is fired from his job. Deep-thinking Svet-Ake becomes locked in an internal debate about the morality of his so-called misdeeds.
