Lhacham, as a little girl, was supposed to stay at home, helping her parents with the housework and farming. She was not meant to go to school. However, She decided otherwise. She fled away from home to join a monastery and became a nun.
This short film follows her footsteps during her first visit into the big town where she must find a repair shop for her tape-recorder; the only tool she's got to listen to her Tibetan language lessons.
