At the start of spring, in the upland valleys of Central Asia, the echo of a piercing yowl can be heard. For many mammals, it’s an alarm signal: For the snow leopard, it heralds the mating season, the females calling to the males, who arrive hungry, nervous, and ready to fight.
For a mother with her two young, who are far from ready to fend for themselves, a tricky phase lies ahead. Firstly, because she must hunt tirelessly to feed her litter. But also because she has protect them from males seeking to mate with her, who would kill any offspring that is not their own. If these young cats make it through the winter, it will then be their turn to reign supreme in this frozen kingdom.
Set in the remote mountains of China and Tibet, this film follows the perilous existence of a female and her two young snow leopards, who are less than a year old, in a valley of stunning beauty with a dazzling diversity of wildlife.
Two photographer brothers came upon this lost valley in 2016 and were amazed to find it home to a dense population of snow leopards in a relatively small territory. Their discovery led to this exceptional film about an elusive big cat that is rarely caught on camera.
