Synopsis

On the Tibetan grasslands, Darje and Drolkar live a serene and ordinary life with their three sons and the grandfather. A condom sparks a series of embarrassment and dilemma, breaking the harmony of the family. What matters more in the circle of life and death, soul or reality?

Director’s Statement

Qiqiu explores the relationship between reality and soul. Tibetan people believe that only the flesh perishes while the soul lives on. When the Buddhist faith crashes with the reality of modern society, they now have a choice to make.
