Add to basket KATHMANDU LULLABY
Based on a true story and inspired by the novel by Victòria Subirana, Kathmandu Lullaby is a bold international journey of discovery - one woman's heartfelt struggle to effect change and enrich education amidst the abject poverty of the developing world.
Laia (Verónica Echegui) is a young Catalan teacher in search of something deeper to define her life. Leaving behind a troubled past in Barcelona, she moves to the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu to work at a local school, surrounded by the majestic Himalayas.
Caught in the middle of extreme hardship and a bleak educational landscape, Laia forges a friendship with teacher Sharmila (Saumyata Bhattarai) and embarks on an ambitious educational project in the Kathmandu slums. But to fully commit herself to the task at hand, Laia must marry a Nepalese citizen to remain in the country.
A marriage of convenience, Laia settles for quietly spoken local Tsering (Norbu Tsering Gurung) but is torn between an unconventional love and her tireless commitment to the school children - establishing an innovative teaching model and classroom dynamic with the potential to break down perceived barriers of caste and class for generations to come.
