'Born in the high Himalaya separated from family for education after 12 long years, it's time to go home'.
A moving documentary finds a group of children in a remote Nepalese village having to decide between their family and their future. Born high in the Himalayas, the children featured in Zara Balfour and Marcus Stephenson’s film left home for Kathmandu, to be taught at a school run by a Buddhist monk. With no ability to return home when they want, the children are away for a decade. But at 16, upon graduating, they must take the arduous journey back home. But as this extraordinary film unfolds, the stress of a family reunion is the least of everyone’s problems.
Featuring an exclusive introduction from Bear Grylls.
★★★★ “A wonderfully touching documentary”
