Compelled by his curiosity, Lopsang leaves his home village for the outside world. Having crossed the Himalayas on foot, he settles down in Germany where reality ironically contradicts his will. For mere survival, he compromises by becoming a sushi maker in a fast food shop. This mundane occupation, however, introduces to him a new lifestyle in which ""zen-ness"" enfolds. The foreign environment also gives him a deeper reflection on what ""home"" entails. Lopsang who has now found his peace of mind comes to accept his circumstances, and makes himself home in this foreign land, even though it in every aspect differs from his own. As nostalgic melodies arise, the haunting memories of his homeland still fills his mind with affection even today.
