Bollywood in a refugee camp: in this documentary musical, refugees sing about loss of identity -- without pathos, but with a healthy portion of irony. In 1990, one sixth of the Bhutan population – Nepalese nationals – were deported after demanding more rights. Since then, these people have lived in a refugee camp in Nepal – and are now being „resettled“ in the USA, Australia or Norway. For 13-year old Sarita, who was born in the camp, her forced emigration is the beginning of an odyssey and the search for what is home. Director Sergio Basso has put together her and many other destinies and developed a musical with the inhabitants of the camp that tells of their difficult situation.
