Hoping her deaf five year-old daughter Radha might be able to hear and speak, Yasodha, 25, a devoted mother, visits the shaman in the nearby village. As per ritual, the shaman tells Yasodha to go to a temple in the heart of Kathmandu. Yasodha tries to convince her husband and sister to accompany her, but they refuse. So she leaves alone for the city with her daughter. Upon reaching the temple, Yasodha learns about another goddess temple, where she is told to lock away her daughter until she utters a word. Yasodha follows the ritual and locks Radha inside the temple, eagerly waiting for her to speak.
