The Film is about an 80 years old religious Buddhist, who migrated from Tibet 50 years back and founded a little village at the Indo-Nepal border. It explores his stories, religion, inner belief, strength, survival-struggle, tolerance to difference and nostalgia for his homeland that he has left behind, to receive a lesson from his existential search for meaning in life. Today, when consumption is redefining identity in terms of relentless gratification of 'desire', his life shows a different connotation of need, rejecting endless acquisition. This Film carries the quest to explore the diasporic-identity of a person to celebrate the strength that resists cultural-'mainstreaming' of today's consumerist-world.
