Synopsis

In the most remote and isolated Nepal there is still a sexist tradition. Women, when they have the period, are separated from the community. They are considered impure. Even less can they climb a mountain, the gods could get angry. To attract attention to this injustice, Edurne Pasaban joins an expedition in which five young women from the region intend to climb the sacred mountain Saipal.
