Four Austrians, four Afghans. No one knows each other, but there is a deal. The four Austrians will teach the Afghans how to ski, and the four Afghans will introduce the Austrians into the art of their national sport, Buzkashi, where men ride on horses and fight for a dead sheep. However, the goal is neither the skiing race, nor the Buzkashi match. Can reputed language barriers and cultural gaps be overcome so simply? Or will this attempt end up in a lingual chaos of a Babylonian dimension?
