High up in a Nepalese highland village, the children drive their cattle out to pasture. In these natural surroundings they spend their days singing, playing and guarding the animals. When two backpackers suddenly turn up, the children are filled with astonished excitement – and Jaalgedi is especially curious. But in all her amazement and fascination with the two strangers, she forgets to keep an eye on the cows.
