Kerry's marriage is disintegrating and Sebastian is disconnected from his father. To save their rocky relationships, Kerry convinces her work-obsessed and over cautious husband Mal into taking a family holiday - wandering around Nepal is just what the three need. Kerry books nothing, plans little and anticipates a gentle 'hippy-trail' ramble. Instead, the family find themselves stumbling through a land imploding upon itself and are soon caught in the midst of bombs, crocodile-infested waters, paint-bombing monks and a kidnapping. A delightful, and at times hilarious, journey of a family finding each other, losing their inhibitions, and along the way, discovering the richness of life through the resilience of Nepal and her ever-smiling people.
