Dolkar is a 26-year-old exile Tibetan. She escaped from Tibet with her father 18 years ago, by making a perilous trek across the Himalayas that ended in tragedy. Dolkar has since suppressed all recollection of that traumatic incident. But when she unexpectedly encounters Gompo, the guide who had abandoned them when they made their escape, it brings back long suppressed, traumatic memories. Driven by her desire to finally find the truth and thus peace inside herself, she sets out on an obsessive search.

She follows Gompo through the claustrophobically narrow alleys of the Tibetan refugee settlement in Delhi, until they finally face each other.
