Ashmina, a young Nepalese girl, works packaging the chutes of paragliding foreign tourists after they land. A larger than usual tip leads her to question fundamental aspects of her life.


Same Planet, Different Worlds

In the melting pot of the modern world we brush up against real and imagined divides every day. These stories exist along those boundary lines, challenging us to see the humanity on both sides.
