Pema Tseden’s magnificently shot drama focuses on a Tibetan family living far from the big city. Dargye (Jinpa), and his wife Drolkar (Sonam Wangmo) have three sons and live with his elderly father. A further pregnancy would leave them facing a ruinous fine under the One Child Policy. Droklar’s sister Ani (Yangshik Tso) became a nun after a doomed love affair. Neither woman can determine her own future in this traditional patriarchal society. Buffeted by changing times and conflicting demands of faith and state, family ties threaten to unravel in this poignant tale.
