    This film revolves around the polyandry custom prevalent among the Lama communities living in the mountain region of Nepal. Among Lamas of Humla district of Nepal, there is still a very strange tradition, which may be a matter of great surprise to many. Lama brothers, no matter what in numbers they are, just marry a girl (have a common wife). They not only share their love and work, they also share a wife among them.
