In Thungri, a small village in the mountains, live Wan-Gals-Zangbo, his parents, his grandmother and Zing Zing Bar, their faithful dog. One morning while Wang-Cuck, the father, works Wan goes to warn him because he can not find the dog anymore. They go to look for it and find it in a crevasse. In taking it out of there they discover a casket full of precious stones and a letter. The father runs from the educated man of the village to get the letter read and discovers that the stones were donated to their ancestor by a king. Wang leaves the village to go and sell some stone while his son and dog stay with the women. After a few weeks there was no news of the man. At the end Zangbo, who in the meantime has studied with the old sage Ang-Cuck, a traveler, leaves the house and goes in search of his father.
