“When will a train from Karnali to Bombay commence? Fate’s game, unfulfilled will remain heart’s yearning. Oh ... Karnaili’s flood ... when will you reach Bombay?” Set in a village in the mountainous Jumla in far western Nepal, this stunning film takes place during the first elections in Nepal after the Maoist conflict period. Soulful flute melodies and the constantly flowing waters of Karnali intertwine to tell a poignant story of young Bijuli, and of love, migration, separation and longing.
