Anand, a modern Indian yogi and guru, asks his student Adam to join him on a motorcycle expedition through the highest passes of the Indian Himalayas. These are some of the most dangerous roads in the world, but Adam only just learned to ride two weeks before the trip. Still, they manage to assemble a team of seven motorcycle riders to share in what will become the journey of a lifetime. We are guided by Anand who bears the burden of a Vedic prophecy that predicts he will die in his late twenties in an accident. He is that age now, yet leads fearlessly with the wisdom that “Only the one who dies, truly lives.” But wisdom in words and wisdom in practice are very different indeed, especially along the sheer icy edges of Himalayan cliffs. The bikers ride this edge, navigating dirt, gravel, snow, ice and the onslaught of trucks, known as “road killers," as they journey for 21 days towards the highest motorable road on earth; a pass open only three months out of the year.
