Summary "When a young man notices several thefts of sought-after Tibetan mastiffs from local farms, he decides to sell his family's dog before it is stolen and sold on the black market. His father, an aging Tibetan herder, is furious when he discovers their dog missing. His search to buy back his dog leads to a series of tragicomic events that threaten to tear the family apart, while showing the erosion of Tibetan culture under the pressures of contemporary society"--Container.
