Nepal is facing a generational change. Two daughters of a Tamang family are preparing to study abroad. Their hopes for a better life are high, but the price is immeasurable. They have to leave behind what is the Tamang people’s greatest good: their family. In their home village, the sisters seek a conversation with their mother and grandmother, who still lead arduous lives in the old tradition. They never got to go to school, and that is not the only thing that distinguishes the three generations as children of their time. Recently, things have changed a lot. And yet the women have one thing in common: For their family, they give their all.
