Summary

1976: Friends Marcus and Ruth go missing during an overland bus trip to Kathmandu. A generation later, Ruth’s niece Amber, haunted by the disintegration of her family, determines to get at the truth of their disappearance. Tracking down the trip’s bus driver, Cassidy, Amber starts to piece together a lost world - the mystical vibrant hippy trail to India. As the mystery unfolds, Amber begins a journey that leads her into the dark secrets of the past and face-to-face with a tragedy much closer to home.
