Summer Pasture is a feature documentary of a young nomadic couple living with their infant daughter in the high grasslands of eastern Tibet which is seldom visited by outsiders.


Locho and his wife Yama live in Dzachukha, eastern Tibet, nicknamed "5-most" by the Chinese for being the highest, coldest, poorest, largest, and most remote area in Sichuan Province, China. They depend on their herd of yaks for survival, just as their ancestors have for generations. In recent years however, Dzachukha has undergone rapid development, which poses unprecedented challenges to nomadic life.
