The Himalayan Mountains in Jammu & Kashmir, the northern most state of India, are home to 'Bakkarwals', the shepherds. They are the pastoral nomads of Jammu and Kashmir, who might be traced back to the foreign tribes that entered ancient India, from the northwest. This film focuses on those Bakkarwals, who are still continuing with their ancient profession. They breed, nurture, tend, and sell their goat and the sheep.
