Pemba is a Himalayan Sherpa, the Nepalese ethnic group famous worldwide for giving support to western mountaineers on the highest peaks in the world. However, Pemba has never climbed a mountain; she is a folk singer who fled her country years ago due to the civil war in the 1990s, and that now has a new life with her family in Catalonia, Spain. Twenty years later, Pemba decides to return to her hometown, Goli, a tiny village located on a secluded plateau in the heart of the Himalayas and totally isolated from progress, to organize a concert and discover what remains of the paradise where she grew up. During this return trip, she will show us through ten people who live there; a farmer, a monk, a teacher, a sorcerer, a mountain guide, etc., what life is like in one of the most mythical places on Earth.
