A group of young Israelis with Down syndrome and their siblings embark on a demanding trip through the Indian Himalayas. Many of the siblings have travelled through India before and want to share this experience with their brother or sister, and slowly come to realize with how different the hike will be this time around. But together on this physically and emotionally trying journey, the conflicts and the complexities of the siblings' relationships come to the surface. Set against the richly colorful backdrop of India, new bonds are forged, and familial ties become deep friendships. From the director of Dolphin Boy.
