Tashi lives alone in the petrol station of a small town. When the government begins to build a dam the water slowly accumulates, forcing the townspeople to leave their home. Only Tashi resists forced displacement.
Then he meets Eshna, who’s husband was deployed by authorities to supervise the dam’s construction. Although Eshna is married, she leads a lonely life too. In spite of their differences and the language barrier, a close relationship develops between Tashi and Eshna due to their loneliness. When the construction work is almost completed, it is time for them to make a decision. Which path will Eshna take, and will Tashi fight for his land, his world – or will he give in to the government?
