The desolate beauty of the high Tibetan plateau forms the backdrop to this harsh story of the struggles between antelope poachers and the patrol licensed to stamp them out. A Beijing journalist elicits the strange ambiguities in this tussle - curiously resembling a modern-day Western - in the mutual obsession of hunters and hunted.
