The creative team, led by Sapna and Yohan, along with Akash Bhatia, the director, have created a beautiful film that makes you feel the tension of everyday life and the release that a break in the mountains brings. The film exhorts you to escape the everyday, to the purity, of the mountains where time and stresses are put in their place. You can't help but agree with that message.”
