    In this expose of East meets West, Brooklyn-born host and global explorer, Chris Bashinelli (aka "Bash"), trades in his motorcycle for horseback- walking in the shoes of the oldest nomadic culture on earth. His mission? To see if he's tough enough to survive as a nomad. This means being slammed on the tundra by 300 pound B©œkh wrestlers, drifting in racecars at 40 miles per hour on the outskirts of the city and grinding it out as a nomad at the ends of civilization. From the architectural marvels of Ulan Bator, to the dreamlike beauty of the steppe, we walk inside a world that is transforming at a nearly unrecognizable rate. Whether he's acting out scenes from The Sopranos (HBO) with inhabitants of the remote countryside or competing in a freestyle rap competition in the nation's largest shantytown, the concept of 'nomad' is anything but what Bash would have expected. He herds goats, makes vodka, sleeps in a yurt, and is challenged to his greatest test of all- to gallop a horseback across the Mongolian steppe. The only problem is...he's never been on a horse in his life. Will he survive?
