This National Award winning film is a sombre journey of imaginative and impulsive teenager, Lasya, who lives with her father Karma, an apricot jam-maker and younger brother Chomo in a remote village in the Himalayas. Pristine snow-capped mountains surround their tiny hamlet and barren harsh land stretches for miles into nowhere. One day the army moves in, settles a hundred yards across their doorstep. The last bit of comfort the family draws from their familiar surroundings changes into a harsh, ceaseless, irreversible conflict. The film depicts the life of this family whose dreamlike existence
is interrupted by insurmountable odds, one after the other.
