A man from Kathmandu and his wife have been trying unsuccessfully to have a child. In desperation, he travels to the mountains of eastern Nepal to seek help from a miracle healer. The healer gives him a magic potion which will only work if her returns to his wife with the next thirty-six hours. The bus he boards for home is crowded with people all needing to be somewhere in a hurry. As it winds its way through the narrow streets, hills and valleys of Nepal, what ensues is both a gripping road movie and an unflinching portrayal of life in Nepal today.
