PREMIERES

Dolkar is a 25-year-old Tibetan woman living in Delhi. 15 years ago, she escaped from Tibet with her father, making a traumatic journey across the Himalayas, suppressing all related recollection. But when Dolkar unexpectedly encounters Gompo, the guide who abandoned them before they crossed the final pass to freedom, memories of her escape are reignited and she is propelled on an obsessive search for reconciliation. Caught up in a web of political intrigue that is much larger than her personal quest, Dolkar must now reconcile Gompo’s act of treachery that has haunted her all her life with the life-or-death situation he now faces. The two stories moving in tandem, one inexorably forwards in the present, the other unexpectedly backwards in time, reaches its conclusion as Dolkar and Gompo finally confront each other and the source of Dolkar’s long-buried anguish is revealed.
