In a remote valley of Bhutan, the teenager Sangay lives with her father, a traditional Buddhist painter and craftsman of wooden phalluses. She reluctantly delivers them to neighbors, who believe that the phalluses are supposed to ward off evil spirits. Sangay isn't happy with her life, opposing her dad and everybody at school. The girl feels trapped between the vast emptiness of the valley and the cruel masculinity. Everything changes when Sangay’s father discovers that she is seeing a married man.
