In the misty environs of Uttarakhand amid mighty Himalayan peaks, Kapil Malhotra, an ex army officer trains local kids in mountaineering and search & rescue. Gauri Singh, a school teacher in a deaf school approaches him with an offer to train the children in her school for a mountaineering expedition; children who are considered handicapped by the society due to their hearing and speech impairment.
Kapil readily accepts the proposal. He selects 13 students from the deaf school and takes them to the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering (NIM), Uttarkashi for advanced mountaineering training. This initiative of NIM is highly appreciated by local and national media.
Sailing is however not smooth for these children at NIM. Hima Singh, an accomplished Instructor at NIM doubts the decision of Principal Col. Thapa to enroll these children in mountaineering course. She firmly believes these children to be good for nothing and totally unfit for a course that is physically challenging and mentally demanding.
Due to some unforeseen circumstances, Kapil gets injured in a freak accident and Institute ends up sending Hima with the children for their final expedition in the Himalaya; completing which is a pre-condition for their becoming a certified mountaineer.
