The director set out to Nepal to shoot two different films:
The first, about the largest Passover Seder in the world taking place in the Katmandu valley, and the second, a journey in the spectacular Nepalese Himalayan mountains, a breathtaking trek to Gokyo peak.
Preparations for the Seder are carried out like a military operation and over 1,000 travelers attend this joyous meal. The film explores the logistics involved in preparing for this event, and more importantly, the goodwill and unity in instills in people of all backgrounds. What emerges is the seemingly impossible connection between these two far-away worlds and two completely different journeys.
Two journeys – one film.
