Born and raised in Molubari, Nepal, chhori struggles to fit in to the traditional world of her mountain village. Forced to conform to the expectations of her culture and burdened by the societal views of her gender, she longs to discover a place of freedom. At sixteen, when she finds out her father has promised to marry her off to an older man, she decides to leave home. She runs away to Kathmandu where she naively mistakes the advances of the leader of a prostitution ring as kindness. After weeks imprisoned as a servant in the dark world of the Nepali sex trade, she escapes, only to have the city come crashing down around her in a massive earthquake.
