Ulzii, a teenager from a poor neighbourhood in Ulaanbaatar, is determined to win a physics competition to get a scholarship. His illiterate mother finds a job in the countryside, leaving him and his younger brother and sister in the middle of winter. Ulzii needs to find ways to keep their yurt warm and look after his siblings while preparing for the national competition.

If Only I Could Hibernate was the first Mongolian film to play in the Official Selection of the Cannes Film Festival.

Early Doors: Sit back and enjoy coffee, cake and the big screen at Showroom Cinema for just £7 with a special all-in-one ticket for over 55s.

This week's screening will NOT feature descriptive subtitles. This is because they were not included in the digital files supplied by the film distributor. Hopefully as more cinemas offer this service to their customers, this will become less common and more films will become available to screen using this facility.

However, this film will feature English subtitles for foreign language dialogue.
