An aspiring singer living in the capital of Bhutan dreams of getting a visa to Australia, but finds himself posted to the world’s remotest school. After an arduous 8 day trek he finds no electricity, no textbooks, no blackboard. Though poor, the villagers extend a warm welcome, but he faces the daunting task of teaching the children without any supplies. He wants to quit, but learns of the hardship in the lives of the beautiful children he teaches, and is transformed through the amazing spiritual strength of the villagers. LW
