Synopsis

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. He struggles across dimensions of space and time as he treads on forbidden ground. The herd left behind disintegrates as predators roam around, and they are left head-less.
