Synopsis - Gyamo - the female snow leopard and her 2 cubs haven’t been seen since the big male snow leopard appeared. The father son wildlife filmmaker duo Mike and Gautam return to the same mountain to pick up their trail and find the cubs. Exploring this amazing landscape they discover there are many challenges that surround this endangered cat. Scientists estimate that 4500-10,000 snow leopards remain in the wild but their exact numbers are still not known. Even before the cats can be understood, its landscape is changing under the impacts of development and tourism. To truly understand the snow leopard it is imperative to understand the people who share its home and find solutions to protect this elusive cat and its habitat before it disappears forever.
