In September 2006, two unlikely groups of people crossed paths in the snow-capped Himalayas, one seeking freedom, the other adventure. A brutal murder threw them together, changing their lives forever. In an incident that shocked the world, a teenage nun, Kelsang Namtso, was killed when Chinese border police opened fire on a group of pilgrims, as they fled Tibet over the famous Nangpa Pass, the gateway to Nepal and to freedom. The shooting was witnessed by international mountain climbers, some of whom photographed the events, helped rescue survivors and sent the story out to the world.
