The Paths of Kathmandu


Add to my list

May 1968. Olivier, a young student, decides to escape his dreams and ideals in search of power, fortune and his father, a businessman who organizes trips for billionaires to Kathmandu in Nepal.

He meets Jane there, a British hippy, a lost-soul who takes drugs in search of an ideal communitarian lifestyle in the sacred city. Although they fall in love, they are separated by their personal quests...

Love, drugs, lost illusions. There are paths to lose oneself, and those to find oneself: the paths of Kathmandu.
