What is the mystery behind these trees, still unknown in the West until now? Could they be the ancestors of our cultivated apple-trees, and could Kazakhstan be the Garden of Eden? Through a scientific and historical research, the film introduces the work of Aymal Djangaliev, a Kazakh scientist who dedicated his life to study and preserve these forests; it also introduces the scientific American, English and French research works about the true 'miracle' of this biodiversity. We then discover the secret of the extraordinary resistance to the Malus sieversii apple-trees disease, which might give us apples without pesticide in the future.
