The goal of the project was to travel to the southern rural part of Nepal to capture and film the hopes and aspirations of the children studying in the public schools of that region. The project was a last minute call but the team of Threemm without hesitation accepted it.
The plan was to travel to the two municipalities, Yamunamai and Durga Bhagwati and scout all the 28 schools in order to look for a character who would share her aspirations and give us an insight on their daily life at home. Language was the biggest challenge at that moment. However, the experience of the film professionals from Threemm Film Production company overcome any obstacles during the shoot.
The outcome was well appreciated by the Like Team and Project Leader.
