Sex, faith and politics collide in this drama set in The Tibetan plateau in the 1980's. No more condoms. No more children allowed. No easy answers.

When Drolkar’s two boisterous youngest sons blow up the household’s few remaining condoms, mistaking them for balloons, she’s left with an impossible decision. China has just introduced its One Child Policy and with three children already, there’s no way she can have another.
