In a Nepal still exhausted after a revolution, Uttam Sanjel, a young artist honed by the rigors of Bollywood, had a dream: providing education for all of Nepal&́#x80;™s poor children. The film combines a slice of his unrelenting activity with the self-portraits of three young pupils who have taken up the camera to film their own lives. We discover an extraordinary creation very different from the tourist clich©♭s, a remarkable success story in the midst of the anarchy of today&́#x80;™s Nepal. This multifaceted account takes us to the heart of the struggle to provide an education to Nepal's children desperate for knowledge by a man with unflagging determination. But how long can our hero withstand the obstacles facing the bamboo schools?
