A breathtaking and beautifully-filmed story from the Sherpas’ perspective. In faraway Eastern Nepal, there is a holy mountain called Kumbhakarna (aka Jannu). Its peak is home to gods and demons. No man can touch its slopes and it is believed that a Sherpa who dares set foot on the mountain, will die. When Ngada is offered work on an expedition to the forbidden slopes of Kumbhakarna, he must decide whether or not to accept the work, opposing his faith and lamas’ warnings.
