‘Where the winds blow’ is a journey of a young woman who embarks on a trek towards an unknown destination somewhere in the high Himalayan mountains.
As the beautiful terrains turn harsh and nature challenges her, she braves these and her internal hurdles to find her resilience.
‘Where the Winds blow’ is a young woman’s resilient journey through the beautiful yet perilous terrain of the Himalayas. We walk with the character into wilderness as she seeks to find herself through her interactions with life and the overwhelming environment beyond its postcard images.
My idea is to explore how these beautiful images start to become overbearing and the way they shape human resilience due to sheer willpower.
