Kekexili, the largest animal reserve in China, is home to many rare species, including the Tibetan antelope, or chiru. Prized for its hair, which is used for making the luxurious but illegal shatoosh scarves, the antelopes numbers have been dwindling drastically in the past twenty years as poachers slaughter the animals, often hundreds at a time. In 1993 local Tibetans formed a volunteer patrol to try to stop the illegal poaching sometimes at the cost of their own lives. Mountain Patrol chronicles the life-and-death struggle between these volunteers and the poachers, and takes place in the 5.000-meter high Kekexili on the Qingzang-Tibetan Plateau.
