With this spirit, Caryl Thornton leaves Los Angeles and begins her journey around the world, open to the new and ready for adventure.

She denies her feelings for Nima, but as she comes to know the land and the Sherpas, she falls in love with Nima, his country, his people, and their joy. Together, Caryl and Nima struggle to find balance in Los Angeles and Ann Arbor, but it is on their return to Nima's homeland near Mount Everest that they both come to terms with who they have now become.
