A Tibetan woman travels to Dharamsala to make a film about the exile community, and to escape her crumbling personal life back in New York City. She makes a connection with a disaffected local who spends his time online and chasing Western girls, as well as an ex-monk who recently escaped from political imprisonment.
Together they end up on the search for a CIA-trained resistance fighter who has been missing for some time.
