Khumi is the smallest of the indigenous groups in the Chittagong Hill Tracts of southeastern Bangladesh. In today’s age of globalization, changes are occurring in the animist Khumi peoples’ religion, culture, lifestyle and language, raising concern over the gradual disappearance of their unique beliefs and customs. In this documentary, filmmakers spend a year in the lives of the Khumi as they explore the present situation of these people within the context of a rapidly evolving world.
