Out of the mouths of babes comes the truth. A group of 26 Ladakhi children, living in a sheltered valley in the High Himalayas embark on a school exchange in France. From their world in a sheltered valley behind a pass at 5700 meters (often closed in winter), these children offer a sobering look at Western lifestyle. Their initial thoughts about France and the contrast to their everyday life back home is often humorous yet poignant.
