A chronicle of one summer with a young family amidst a period of great uncertainty. Locho, his wife Yama, and their infant daughter, nicknamed Jiatomah ('pale chubby girl'), spend the summer months in eastern Tibet's Zachukha grasslands, an area known as Wu-Zui or '5-Most,' the highest, coldest, poorest, largest, and most remote county in Sichuan Province, China. The story of a family at a crossroads, "Summer Pasture" takes place at a critical time in Locho and Yama's lives, as they question their future as nomads. As their pastoral traditions confront rapid modernization, Locho and Yama must reconcile the challenges that threaten to drastically reshape their existence.
