This documentary specifically includes the heart-rending incidents that have occurred in the Karnali region due to economic motives. At the same time this film also puts 'when' question on the origin and development of Nepali language used as the national language. It also records the introduction of the first school in Karnali
region.The film highlights the geographical and socio-economic condition of Karnali zone as the direct impact on the education system: the majority of school students in search of 'Yarchagumba' (Cordyceps sinensis fungus) in the Himalayan area alone or accompanied by their parents, life threatening accidents like avalanche met by them in search of their income generation, various hindrances in the academic setting of Karnali and the pain felt by entire Karnali dwellers. Despite all these, their love and attachment to the importance of education is the moral advice that this film seek to endow upon its audiences.
