The film is about Himalayan shepherds who follow the cycle of transhumance. For generations, every summer, the family of this particular shepherd, (like others), has followed the same trail upto 14,000 ft.. These ecologically-aware pastorals now face grazing problems in winter, when they come down. Due to increased agricultural cultivation and new forest- protection policies, young shepherds are faced with difficult choices between traditional practices and the viability of survival.
