Perturbed by a haunting recurring rumble that reverberates across the mountains, two shepherds in a remote Himalayan region try to alert their elders and engage their local community. But, to their dismay, no one else around them seems to hear or care.

A vivid glimpse into the idiosyncrasies of a remote community turns into an intriguing parable about the greatest existential threat of our times. Amidst elegant cinematography, understated performances, and whiffs of humor, the film artfully weaves together a quietly eerie mystery that carries a sense of inevitable doom. The film premiered at the 2023 International Film Festival Rotterdam.
