Synopsis
Cultural barriers and tensions arise between German filmmaker Irja and Bhutanese farmer Sangay
when they team up to create a fictional yet educational TV series to encourage the new generation to
create value in rural areas instead of emigrating to the big cities. Their differences mirror Bhutan’s
hardships implementing sustainable growth after centuries of isolation. Both, individuals and country,
must find a way to collaborate if they are to keep their identity but join the world scene.
