In 2013 a forest warden in a nature park in the north-east of Mongolia discovers the tracks of some leopards. The authorities decide to begin an extensive survey to establish their numbers. Thus Rasmus and Francesco, two naturalists with expertise in the field of camera traps are taken on to install 50 cameras and collect images of the snow leopards. However, the two men will first of all have to deal with daily life together with the forest wardens and the families of shepherds who accommodate them during their stay.
