Leo's jobless, crippled by anxiety, and obsessed with a girl he hasn't seen in two years.
Just as things reach an all-time low, Leo's thrown a lifeline. A politician's missing daughter has been traced to Kathmandu. Leo must go there and find her, if his anxiety and the mysterious city will allow.

In his bid to prove himself, Leo sets off on a twisting trail through Kathmandu's labyrinthine streets. But with a storm on the way, the city revealing a dark side, and unexpected danger around every corner, can he find Allissa and get out alive?
