The remote village of Thame, in the nepalese Himalayas, witnesses the return of the famous Lama Zopa Rinpoche, a native from this place. This is a time of celebration for everyone but, just after his departure, a big magnitude earthquake strikes the country heavily, and especially the basic houses of this region of Solokhumbu.

A monk from the monastery, Jimi, has lost his mother during the earthquake. Now the whole village is preparing the cremation of the body in a dedicated place on the mountain. The celebration continues, but this time for a different reason.
