Set in the grand Mongolian grasslands, “Mongolian Ping Pong” depicts the adventures of a boy who finds a ping pong ball floating down a river. Living with neither running water nor modern appliances, the Mongolian boy has no clue what the tiny white orb is. After learning that it’s the “national ball of China,” the boy and his two friends decide to go to Beijing to return it. Starring amateur child actors, this unpretentious, straightforward movie features stunning landscapes.
