Karen kicked the red Volkswagen after it broke down on a windy road at the border of Nepal and Tibet. If she didn't arrive at her destination by the following day she would miss her once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of meeting in person the Dalia Lama. Ever since she was a child, Karen believed that it would only take one meeting with this holy man to bring her healing of her disease....a disease that had prevented her from fulfilling her life-long dream of motherhood... Now her one-last chance of happiness and healing seemed to be in tatters as she stood at the remote road staring down at the smouldering engine of her clapped out red Volkswagen.
