Ugyen, wants to be a singer and move to Australia. However, his National Service requires him to be a teacher and in light of his indifference to the role, he is sent to the most remote school on earth, much against his will. Visually stunning and emotionally uplifting, Lunana, which is the first film from Bhutan to be nominated for an Oscar, may be the hit of the Festival.
