In early 2002 17 construction workers from Jogimara, Dhading were killed by the Nepali army while building a runway in another district–Kalikot. They were branded ‘terrorists’ by the state, and their families did not get their dead bodies or any compensation. Some families have conducted last rites for their loved ones; other wait, hoping their relatives will return.
Many film festivals including Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival (USA), Himalayan Film Festival (Netherlands) screened this documentary. Educational Broadcasting Services of South Korea broadcast the documentary.
