One day in the late 1990s, a blizzard is about to hit a forest on the Tibetan Plateau, and three uninvited guests break into the forest ranger's wooden house. Subsequently, the ranger is involved in the case of a police officer chasing poachers. When confronted, the ranger cannot judge the truth, and the whole incident becomes more intricate.
The debut film One and Four by a young Tibetan Chinese director Jigme Trinley seems to have been deeply inspired by Kurosawa Akira’s Rashomon (1950). Borrowing the thriller genre, it tracks the truth about one elusive incident, set in a remote mountain lodge in the middle of winter. A forest guard at the lodge is visited by a forest police officer. It is said that he got into a car accident while chasing a poacher with a colleague, and he came here after following the poacher who was running away. What's more, the guard's friend, who had witnessed a police and poacher chase while getting lost on the way to the lodge last night, has just arrived, and another man who claims to be a real forest cop appears. In the end, reconstructing the events in this film became complicated. Pema Tseden, the film's producer and representative cineaste of Tibetan cinema, is also the father of director Trinley.
