Former teachers in the audience may recall the days when beginning teachers under contract were sent to unappealing and often remote postings. This is exactly what happens in this charming film from Bhutan where a young teacher Ugyeb (Sherab Dorji) is posted to a cold, windy Himalayan village Lunana (population 56) to teach nine students in the final year of his contract. Reluctantly, he undertakes the eight-day hike to Lunana accompanied by two yak herders and three donkeys. His dreams of becoming a rock star in Australia seem to be fast fading! The new teacher is presented with a yak so that he can use its dry dung for cooking and warmth. Amid spectacular scenery this delightful story of unexpected interactions unfolds.
