“Deepak Rauniyar, turns opposition into a structuring principle,he creates a satisfyingly holistic work.”
– Manohla Dargis, New York Times
When his father dies, anti-regime partisan Chandratravel to his remote mountain village after nearly a decade away. Little Pooja is anxiously awaiting the man she thinks is her father, but she’s confused when Chandra arrives with Badri, a young street orphan rumoured to be his son. Chandra must face his brother Suraj, who was on the opposing side during the Nepalese civil war. The two brothers cannot put aside political feelings while carrying their father’s body down the steep mountain path to the river for cremation. Suraj storms off in a rage, leaving Chandra with no other men strong enough to help. Under pressure from the village elders, Chandra must seek help from outside the village to obey the rigid caste and discriminatory gender traditions he fought to eliminate during the war. Chandra searches for a solution in neighboring villages, among the police, guests at a local wedding, and rebel guerrillas…

  • “The accomplished second feature from director Deepak Rauniyar (Highway) looks at a Nepali community caught at odds between tradition and progress. It takes in the internecine divisions that result from the aftermath of the civil war. “
     – Wendy Ide, ScreenDailey
