THE SHORTNESS OF LIFE: A MONGOLIAN LAMENT is set in Ulaanbaatar in the winter of 2010. In the longest, bleakest winter on record in Mongolia, a flu epidemic strikes. Hospitals are overcrowded, vaccine supplies are depleted and healthcare workers are pushed to their limits. Crops, cattle, children and the elderly are dying.
Amid accusations of sabotage, corruption, and misappropriation, health expert Jorja Himmermann finds peace from her apartment window, watching Brik, the unmoving mastiff, and Bruce, the graceful wrestler. Jorja finds advice in the prophecies of message cards and ancient Mongolian proverbs.
