Shot over a period of one year, this film highlights the predicament of the Brokpas, the semi-nomadic yak herders in the remote & beautiful north-eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh, India. A classic tale of the old vs the new ! While the elders continue to practice age old customs & traditions, and even methods of livelihood, the young ones have other plans.
The high costs involved with yak rearing has discouraged the Brokpas to continue with their traditional way of life. Since major agriculture is almost non-existent above 3,000 metres, highlanders are dependent on outputs from livestock, mainly yak, for their livelihood.
