Bima, tormented by the fact that she is unable to conceive, spends her days working hard in the fields and doing housework, surrounded by fog, as her sister breastfeeds her baby. She belongs to the Mosuo ethnic group, a matriarchal society where a woman's reputation depends on her children and family.
Her thoughts and reflexions are shared through an open dialogue with the documentary's director, who also is not a mother. They discuss what it means to be a woman, freedom and love in this timeless, cloudy place.
After being visited by a Tibetan monk who tries to help her using a ritual that proves unsuccessful, she decides to travel to the city with hopes of finding a new life.
