Song of Tibet tells a story about a Tibetan woman, Yixizhuoma, and her turbulent marriage to Jiacuo, across half a century. Now in her seventies and with Jiacuo dying from lung cancer, Yixizhuoma recalls her story in flashback when visited by her granddaughter from Beijing: how Jiacuo kidnapped her as a young woman, how they fell in love on the flowery plains, how she was separated from her family in the stormy late 1950s, and how she finally found Jiacuo in the mountains in the early 1970s.
