During Nepal’s 2015 earthquake, Canadians Kathy and Bruce Macmillan perished in a landslide that devastated a small village in the remote Langtang Valley. Three years later, their son Jay Macmillan travels to Langtang to reconcile his trauma, by retracing his parents’ footsteps and exploring the land where they passed. In Sonder, Jay begins to forge meaningful relationships with grieving Langtangpa families as they rebuild their lives and communities, unearthing the universal powers of love, loss and acceptance.
