Two men, Bo and Bu, live in a large mud house where the steppes meet the desert, some 6,500 miles from New York. They're accompanied by a donkey, two camels, a guard dog and goats.

Thus his son Ba also discovers what a woman with blue eyes and blond hair looks like. A ménage à trois begins; at night, despite the howling wind, Bu can hear the groans as his father satisfies his desire.
