On the Tibetan grasslands, couple of shepherds lives a serene life with their three sons and a grandfather. After the implementation of 'One child law', shepherd's wife has to request free condoms from a doctor. One day their son mistakes condom for a balloon and sparks a series of embarrassment and dilemma, breaking family's harmony. Further events, the death of the grandfather and unwanted pregnancy will raise a question - what matters more in the circle of life and death, soul or reality? 

„Coming from the Buddhist tradition, director captures magnificent landscapes and his poetic vision helps to contemplate the temporality of our life on Earth. With a hint of humor, the films speaks about the role of religion in contemporary world as well as the impact that oppressive politics have on our lives and ancient traditions." (Aistė Račaitytė)
