Mazza and Tedeschi in Person | U.S. Premiere

The village of Tsarang seems to exist in another time. Against the immense backdrop of clouds sculpted by the day’s weather and Himalayan peaks sculpted by the ages, life goes on as it has for centuries. The fields are plowed by cows, bricks are handmade out of mud, and goods are transported on mule-back. But modernity has also shaped the village, with the arrival of a motorized tractor, Bollywood reruns on the communal television, and polyester soccer jerseys. Set to the rhythms of this world, the film portrays an old trader who accepts things as they are, a Buddhist nun who longs for more schooling, and a young man who wants to buy a car. Soon, a new road will connect Tsarang to Nepal, paving the way for only some dreams to come true.
