The Truth Lake

The Truth Lake

Shakuntala Banaji

Two young backpackers traveling in the foothills of the Himalaya come across the dead body of a white man. The young policeman Kailash Karmel is dispatched into the mountains to investigate undercover. He finds a fairytale lake and a small village where he encounters close-lipped women. But while Karmel is searching for the truth, he touches upon old secrets, and soon he isn't only looking for a body but also for a murderer.
