Bidya (13), a gifted student and aspiring poet, lives in a rural village in Nepal with her younger brother, BASANTA (9), and her single mother. She desperately wants to go to the city school to pursue her dream to study further and leave the conservative society she lives in. But when she fails to secure the first position in the school term, she loses her scholarship. She is reluctant to add a burden to her hard-working mother.
As time passes, Basanta witnesses his sister transform from a strong lady with aspirations to a quiet and helpless girl. He attempts to provide her with some hope and inspiration, by finding a magazine where Bidya’s poem has been published. But when he returns home with the magazine, risking his life, he witnesses a moment, completely unexpected.
