The Highest Pass

Some of the most dangerous roads in the world are atop the highest passes of the Himalayas in Northern India. This documentary film follows Adam Schomer and his Yogi Guru, Anand Mehrotra, as they take a motorcycle journey along these roads in search of Ladakh or Little Tibet. A team of seven bikers agree to accompany them on what will become the journey of a lifetime. From accessibility to altitude sickness, these mountain passes are full of perils. Will they be able to handle the highest passes of the Indian Himalayas? Anand reveals that he discovered a prophecy on his birth chart, foretelling his death in an accident at the age of 27. Despite the prophecy, the team treks on, inspired by the words of wisdom dispensed by Anand. However, wisdom in words and wisdom in practice can be very different indeed. As Adam traverses the highest motorable roads with his teacher, he faces the ultimate question: Is truly living worth dying for? Join their team and filmmakers on a Himalayan motorcycle expedition for the meaning of life.
