Dolkar, a 26-year-old Tibetan, lives in Delhi. 18 years ago, she escaped from Tibet with her father, making a perilous trek across the Himalayas that ended in tragedy. Dolkar has suppressed all recollection of that traumatic incident. But when she unexpectedly encounters Gompo, the guide who abandoned them during their journey, memories of her escape are reignited and she is propelled on a search for retribution and closure. THE SWEET REQUIEM presents an India little seen on the big screen in this gripping and lyrical tale.
