In 1990, one sixth of the population of Bhutan was exiled because they demanded greater democratic rights from the ruler. The film follows the story of Sarita, a 13-year-old girl born in Khudunabari, a refugee camp in Nepal where over 100,000 Bhutanese exiles live. Now they will be “relocated”: thousands of families will be forced to emigrate and their Lotschampa identity will disappear forever. Sarita and her friends will not tell us their odyssey: they will dance and sing it.
