It’s midwinter in the Qinghai Plateau, five kilometers up. This is the home of the snow leopard, the spirit of the Himalayas. Three young yak herders hope to supplement their income by capturing this elusive and majestic creature--on film. Spectacular wildlife (besides snow leopards, bears, wolves, and Bharal sheep are seen), and the stunning backdrop is the setting for a moving story about nature, motherhood, and the fragility of life.
