The child's voice of nine–year–old Punam Tamang transports us to the Nepal city of Bhaktapur. There we are presented with a stark description of the hard life of this young girl and the dismal social conditions in which she lives. Punam's mother died when she was only five. She was left with her father, her newborn sister Rabina and her two–year–old brother Krishna. The film also takes us into the world of Punam's friends whose families do not make enough money to afford the school fee.
This 27-minute film was produced by Lucian and Nataša Muntean of Lunam Docs and released in 2005 to much critical acclaim. Digital Himalaya is delighted to host the trailer for this film.
