MEZET OR SIMPLY LIFEAskar is rich and successful, but he does not value friendship, does not know what love is, and does not respect people. One morning he loses consciousness and falls. After a check-up it is discovered that he has a brain tumour and a month to live. Askar starts to tumble and after a lot of booze ends up in an aul. Here Askar begins to understand and appreciate life and meets love… What a surprise when he, having come round, finds that he is in his own house, precisely at the spot where he fell and lost consciousness.
