Plot synopsis
Bakai is an old shepherd who lives in the country while his children have long grown accustomed to life in the city. When his youngest son pays him a visit, Bakai wants him to stay and help with the rigors of rural living. Caught between the old ways and the rapid changes in society, Bakai may have to leave his ancestral land when a highway is slated for construction in the area.
