Halfway round the world, tiny Nepal is united by the spectacle of one of its own competing on the world stage. Children at Tony’s old school conclude he did not cheat, while elsewhere in Kathmandu new information is unearthed on the 2001 massacre of the royal family, a massacre that took the life of Tony’s Sherpa father. A fresh investigation begins, and leads to a shocking discovery.
The news reverberates through the course, affecting Tony’s relationship with Kat, with his family, and especially with Tashi, his girlfriend, putting still more pressure on his pursuit of the coveted green jacket.
From Augusta National golf course to Kathmandu and the slopes of Everest, Ang Tak is a story about character: how it is nurtured, encouraged and strengthened, what it enables an individual or nation to do in the face of adversity.
