Summary "In a remote village in the Dolpo in the North-western Himalayas of Nepal, Tinle, a charismatic old chief, has just lost his eldest son. He refuses to allow his son's friend Karma, whom he holds responsible for his son's death, to lead a caravan of yaks. Karma defies him and the shaman's advice and moves the caravan, with the help of other village youths, before the date set by the ritual. On the day indicated by the gods, Tinle gets together the village elders and sets out on the same journey with his second son and his grandson, who is destined to be the next chief. The ancestral struggle between the old man and the mountains begins all over again. Directed by Eric Valli, and stars Thilen Lhondup and Gurgon Kyap.
