Famous Kazakh playwright Dulat Issabekov celebrates his 75th birthday in London

‘A Man on a Mission’ is a great story of heroism, humanity, kindness and decency written in exquisite detail with themes that thread very well through the ages.
Baluan Sholak which is the “fingerless strong man" is an intelligent and articulate young man who wins a local competition and impresses the judge. Meanwhile elections are being held and clans are asked to vote for or against the local Russian district heads and settlers and in such cases as in Ireland during the times of oppression and land grabbing tensions are running high and the local clans are afraid of what might become of them if they vote against the richer Russian settlers.
