Beyond the known world (2017)

When 19 year old Eva fails to return home to New Zealand from India, her estranged parents, Carl and Julie, must reunite to search for her. Their journey takes them beyond their known world into small Himalayan villages where hash-smoking ex-pats are tight-lipped and local police offer little help.

Desperate to find Eva, Carl’s misreading of the local culture leads to a young woman being imprisoned. Old wounds and betrayals between husband, wife and daughter are exposed, and Carl begins to realise that he may be responsible for driving Eva away.

Believing Eva has died in the mountains, Carl despairs, but Julie’s refusal to stop searching helps Carl understand that sometimes blind faith is better than having none at all, and that to find their daughter they first have to rediscover each other.
