After an Air Force jet crashes in the Himalayas, an old shepherd leaves his herd to find its pilot. But the mountain where the jet fell is sacred and the shepherd’s intentions are not.

Our take

In this mystical drama, a shepherd’s holy-mountain quest transforms into a metaphysical fable about mankind’s search for the sacred. The first film spoken in the Gaddi dialect of a nomadic Himalayan tribe, Ridham Janve’s bold debut ingeniously segues between the surreal and the documentary.
