While backpackers visit a small village in remote northern Laos in search of a traditional experience, the inhabitants of the village discover the attractions of the West. Two worlds meet at the crossroads of their respective desire; the one longing for authenticity, the other for modernity. In this micro-cosmos, their encounter leaves no one unchanged and tells a poetic story of friendship and how we relate to others in a rapidly globalizing world.


Viewpoint Productions presents in co-production with the Buddhist Broadcast Foundation a documentary film by Daan Veldhuizen.
Supported by the Dutch Cultural Media Fund and the Netherlands Film Fund.
