Tharlo lives a simple life in rural Tibet. A 40-year old shepherd who can recite extensive passages from Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book from memory, Tharlo, nicknamed “Ponytail,” rarely interacts with other people. But when he travels to town for an ID card and meets a modern young hairdresser, their relationship threatens to upend the life he knows.
