This epic drama is set in the eighth century and features the Bogar tribe, part of the mysterious Lhoba people who live in the forests of the Tibetan Plateau. Disaster has forced them to the edge of extinction and the story follows their attempt to reverse their imminent destruction. All supporting roles are performed by ethnic Lhobas who are real-life herdsmen, farmers or hunters. The film offers a rare glimpse into a Tibetan culture that’s fast disappearing in the face of an encroaching modern world.
