Tharlo is a shepherd, living with his sheep. One day he is told by the police to get an ID and a photo for it. Before that he is advised to go to a barbershop. The hairdresser is an attractive young woman. Tibetan director and author Pema Tseden tells Tharlo’s story with black and white long takes, with bittersweetness and humor.
