Synopsis

Set in Bhutan, a young trainee teacher named Ugyen is sent to teach in the world’s most remote school located in the Eastern Himalayas. Although reluctant at first due to the challenges he faces in teaching without electricity, textbooks or even a blackboard, Ugyen warms to the students and, with the help of the village leaders, finds a way to adapt and make things work. The support he receives from the locals encourages him to reconnect to his Bhutanese culture and appreciate a gentler way of life away from the familiar hustle and bustle of the city. With an inspiring message about community, the environment, and the importance of education, this is a great film to initiate discussion about rural life in a part of the world rarely depicted on screen.
