Sister Anna, a young Catholic nun from Poland, is sent as missionary to a congregation in the Himalayas. Anna is 25 years old and has spent half of her life in the monastery. For the first time she now goes to another country: the authentic region of Ladakh, which is part of Tibet and on the territory of India. Having arrived there, Sister Anna finds herself in a completely unfamiliar world. She clashes with an entirely different culture, with different energies and another religion. The mysterious world of Tibet and the accidental meetings on the way raise complex questions and ideas.
