Run Time: 85 minutes, Certificate: ,
Action set during the mid '90s which tells the tale of the deadly battles waged between Chinese poachers - who have their sights set on Kekexili's endangered antelopes - and the group of mountain patrolmen who'll stop at nothing to punish them. A hotshot journalist is employed from Beijing to join the latter group and see what makes them tick. So begins a tireless pursuit for justice; in the process, lives are sacrificed, sandstorms are braved and the boundaries of investigative reporting are blurred forever.
