Synopsis

On the path of life, sometimes we meet someone whose dreams overtake our own to the point that they converge.
This is a story of revenge and redemption.
On an isolated road passing through the vast barren plains of Tibet, a truck driver who has accidentally run over a sheep chances upon a young man who is hitching a ride. As they drive and chat, the truck driver notices that his new friend has a silver dagger strapped to his leg; he comes to understand that this man is out to kill someone who wronged him earlier in life. As he drops the hitchhiker off at a fork in the road, little does the truck driver realise that their short time together has changed everything, and that their destinies are inexorably intertwined.

Director’s Statement

This is a film about awakening. Once we are awaken, we can step onto the road towards the future.
