Francoise, an Australian photographer, travels to Bhopal in India, where twenty years earlier a gas leak killed thousands.
There she meets Naga, a Tibetan refugee whose family died in the disaster, and Arkay, a Scottish traveller battling addiction, who has found solace in Buddhism.
As a Testament to their time together Francoise assembles photographs from their lives into an album, the "Red Book".
The photographs tell their stories of love struggle and transformation - pointing to the people they have been and who they will become.
