The mountains beckon and she responds each year. This film is about a young trekker who sets out on her first trek alone. Although she isn’t new to the mountains, she feels that every visit is fresh. However this time around she chooses to visit the Himalayas without the usual company of known companions. On a fairly easy two-day trek to Parashar Lake at 9000 feet in Himachal Pradesh, the weather, holding up its unpredictable nature, lays across her path serendipitous events that lead to unexpected adventures. The film consists of a series of episodes, each of which is tailored to give an essence of the traveller’s encounters and her response to it.
