Set against the backdrop of the new culture of bandhs (general strikes) that frequently immobilize post-conflict Nepal, HIGHWAY explores four different stories that become intertwined during an ill-fated bus journey from Eastern Nepal to the capital Kathmandu. While the passengers - each of whom urgently needs to be somewhere else - work out a resolution to the combustible strike that is blocking the only passable road, the film explores the emotional and spiritual bandhs that many Nepalis are contending with.
