The guiding Buddhist notion of impermanence plays a central role in the story of Dolkar, a young woman who embarked on a perilous trek to India with her father when she was a girl. Now firmly part of Delhi’s large Tibetan community, Dolkar is helping Gompar, a recent arrival fleeing Chinese security forces in Lhasa. Slowly, Dolkar recognises Gompar as the guide who abandoned her group on a treacherous Himalayan path all those years ago. But is this really him? Dolkar’s consuming memories of childhood trauma are artfully threaded into the suspenseful depiction of her desire for revenge. Sarin and Sonam have documented the Tibetan experience for more than 20 years. This is one of their finest films yet.
