The documentary took home the 2012 UNICEF Prize at the Prix Jeunesse International Festival in Germany.


The documentary won the prize for addressing “the complex issues that arise when traditional culture is faced with modern development and how that affects young people and their future.” Filmed in northern Bhutan, the documentary not only highlights children’s right to education, but also presents young people themselves trying to affect change for the youth around them.
