A salt trader Tinlé (Lhondup), loses his son (Tsamchoe), who led a caravan across the
mountains. Blaming the death on one of the caravan's companions, Karma, Tinlé decides
to lead the next caravan with his two living sons and grandson, even though he is too
old to make the trek. Karma defies the wishes of Tinlé, leaving with his own caravan, and
Tinlé soon follows.
