Antelope poachers kidnap and execute
a member of the Tibetan posse that was trying to
capture them. (Note: Tibetan
antelope population plummeted from 1 million to
70,000 in five years, the animals' woolen coats
making them a prime target for rustlers).
In 1996, Ga Yu recruits the resourceful Ritai, a
maverick who set up a private mountain patrol three
years earlier, to accompany the posse on its mission.
The drama unfolds over 17 days, with the journo
witnessing the ruthlessness of the profiteers, and
the patrol of volunteers combating their merciless
adversaries and a frequently dangerous landscape.
