August 1916, the great explorer Alexandra David-Néel has been in her hermitage cavern in the Himalayas for two and a half years, following the teachings of her guru, the Lama Gomchen. She comes to us to make an incredible revelation and take us to the heart of her initiatory journey. So, in a crazy race where she subtly knits particle science, personal experiences and the secret doctrine of Tibetan Buddhism, the spectator is invited to become an accomplice in a formidable and troubling questioning.
