A timeless story of an epic journey from the deserts of Rajasthan to the snow capped peaks of the Himalayas, directed by Asif Kapadia.

In feudal India, Lafcadia (Irrfan Khan) renounces his role as the long-time enforcer for a sadistic local lord and becomes the prey in a murderous hunt through the Himalayan Mountains.
