Jean and her boyfriend travel to Nepal on a volunteering holiday, a Himalayan adventure and a chance to find themselves. But instead Jean finds herself tumbling into a vivid and unexplained psychosis.
In traditional Nepalese game Moving Tigers, tigers hunt goats while the goats choke the tigers’ moves. Jean can’t work out if she’s being hunted or choked, or who is friend or foe.
The cracks in her personality rupture, the chinks in her relationship become gaping holes, and Jean falls into the jaws of a catastrophe.
