In this enchanting Oscar-nominated drama, a daydreaming but discontented young teacher is posted to Lunana, a remote village high in the Himalayan mountains.
There, he is disheartened to find a simple yak herding community lacking basic amenities such as electricity or even a blackboard in its school classroom. But the enthusiasm of his young students and the unassuming warmth of the village folk buoy his spirits and he must decide whether to return to the city before the gruelling winter sets in or remain in this strange and captivating land.
Beautifully photographed in extraordinary Bhutanese mountain locations, Pawo Choyning Dorji’s acclaimed debut feature gives a fascinating insight into a region rarely seen on screen.
