2008 – Producer/director Robert Lang and cinematographer Guy Clarkson accompany musician Bruce Cockburn as he returns to the spectacular Himalayan country of Nepal after twenty years away.
He finds a land where much has changed, with a Maoist government recently installed, women newly empowered, and fresh initiatives to deal with the grinding poverty of the majority of the Nepali people. But its also a land where, in some of the remotest areas, life is lived much in the way it has for centuries salt caravans, subsistence farming on steep mountain terraces and off-the-grid villages connected by an ancient network of footpaths.
