Ma Khusi Chu (I am Happy)



27 mins

Nepali with English Subtitles



This thoughtful and innovative film is about two idiosyncratic urban characters; Vashna, who lives to make others happy, and Aakash, an aimless wanderer who chooses to live happily in the moment. The film is about their meeting, and beautiful and fleeting moments that lead to it.
