One road — a world of change. Every winter Mikma's family travels by foot from their village deep in the Himalayas of Nepal to sell medicinal plants in the city markets — an annual migration of almost 200 miles. The family's journey along the precipitous trails this year is intersected by a construction gang building a modern new highway to China. This is the evocative tale of that journey, full of strong women and beautiful, rugged country. The camera work is unobtrusive, giving one the feeling of being along on the journey. And the soundtrack interweaves beautifully with the natural sounds in the environment. Travelers, photographers and philosophers will all love this film.
