This ethnographic documentary film follows a day in the life of Minu and her family. Minu is a Nepali housewife. She spends her days cleaning, doing housework, working two jobs and looking after Kiran, her eight-year-old daughter with cerebral palsy. As the film shows, this is not an easy life.
Minu has internalised the guilt of having a child with cerebral palsy, herself facing stigma from relatives. Additionally, the film shows the effects of patriarchy, with Minu having to take responsibly for the household and its finances.
