Emil is a social media-obsessed entrepreneur in one of the most remote places on earth: an abandoned Soviet mining town in the mountains of eastern Kyrgyzstan.

Tracing his roots to the nomadic tribes that once roamed the area, Emil has returned to put his village back on the map by convincing wealthy tourists and famous bloggers to go there on vacation.
