    Brief synopsis

    Based on the true life story of the Mongolian violinist and singer Serchmaa, the feature film The Singer follows the path of raise and fall,
    love and intrigue that took the Mongolian celebrity to the stars and back. Inspired by Serchmaa’s true story, we follow the life of Odmaa, who decides to take a musical scholarship from a stranger just after embarking on a national tour following her latest CD release. Odmaa settles in Shanghai, a country foreign to her, and finds love, despite missing home. Sun and stars seem to shine for her as she marries her Prince Charming and gives birth to a healthy son. But soon enough love turns in to lament, darkness and aggression spreads
    and what started out like a dream turns in to a nightmare
