Two daughters of a Nepalese Tamang family are preparing to study abroad. Their hopes for a better life are high, but the price is immeasurable. They have to leave behind what is the Tamang people’s greatest good: their family. The sisters seek a conversation with their mother and grandmother, who still live arduous lives following the old tradition.

Zwei Töchter einer nepalesischen Tamangfamilie bereiten sich auf ein Studium im Ausland vor. Die Hoffnung auf das bessere Leben ist groß, der Preis unermesslich. Sie müssen verlassen, was im Stamm der Tamang höchstes Gut ist: die Familie. Die Schwestern suchen das Gespräch mit Mutter und Großmutter, die noch das harte Leben der alten Tradition führen.
