Description

Filmed over seven years, this documentary takes a view of one Nepalese family's daily struggle to survive off of subsistence farming. When their daughter receives a scholarship to study in Kathmandu, the family's prospects suddenly improve as they rest their hopes and dreams on her shoulders. She promises to return, eager to try to break the cycle of poverty and free her family from their hand-to-mouth existence. But when she doesn't come home, the family is forced to face their fate.
