Nestled between the mountains in isolation, shepherd children tell stories to pass the time. The girls envision wedding scenes while the boys play with their slings, and the two sexes never mix. The story of the Kashmiri Wolf, a green fairy who attacks the cruel and the rich under her wolf skin, is recounted repeatedly. A friendship forms between Sediqa, the outcast amongst the girls, and Qodrat, a boy who recently lost his stepfather, whilst the Kashmiri Wolf silently prowls the night. The muted colours of village life collide with stark reality in this loose coming-of-age narrative. An enchanting realist tale where the mundane takes on a life of its own, intertwined with dreamy mysticism.
