Synopsis

Since the Dalai Lama left Tibet in 1959, the Pokara refugee camp (Nepal) shelters a big Tibetan community, fighting every day to preserve its culture. At the present time, about 150.000 Tibetans live in exile.

The 2001 earthquake in Guyarat region (India) took 20.000 lives, left 167.000 wounded and destroyed about 400.000 homes. In just few seconds, a whole community was impelled to take action for survival and to collectively deal with an unexpected change.

A dialogue between two anonymous voices, two survivors who face life and memory for a better future for their community.
