Set in Bhutan in 1980 and inspired by true events, this is a story of a mother’s devotion to her child, as she travels a great distance from her poor, remote community to get some medicine from a small hospital for her very ill baby.

In a cruel twist of fate she learns that even though the medicine is provided free by the government, she must supply a container to hold the precious liquid. She doesn’t have a bottle and can’t afford to buy one.

The search for a container begins….
