The film tells the story of an inspirational teacher and her students, in Ladakh, by giving a glimpse of a real life dedicated to social work and public healthcare. Every year, Amchi Karma Chodon travels to the most remote areas in Ladakh to raise awareness on women and child healthcare. The documen-tary film is about Amchi Karma and her baby Teljor's last journey into the wilderness of the harsh and difficult landscape of the Himalayas. She travels to ZANSKAR, to reach her students to conduct a final course on women and child healthcare. Before her last journey starts, she also stops by at Korzok vil-lage near the Tso-Moriri Lake (the highest lake in the world) where she tries to reach the nomads to provide preventive healthcare knowledge. Amchi Karma, rather than providing healthcare herself to far away areas, advocates for the education of young Amchis, as she thinks raising and empowering youth will promote a more sustainable public healthcare model.
