Breathtaking pictures and a real humanitarian story
9 May 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This documentary brings you into one of the most remote places on this planet, into a small village in the Himalaya region, up to 9000 feet height.Join Dr. Ruit and Dr. Tabin on their trip through wayless mountain areas, packed with complete surgery equipment to cure blindness of people living there. In outstanding pictures and scenes you can feel the passion of the doctors, their willingness to help and you are affected deeply by the happiness of the people , when they see for the first time in their life their relatives and the world around. This documentary gave me a deep insight in the live of people living in these remote places and I saw breathtaking pictures, never seen before. For me this is a great humanitarian story and a wonderful impression of the Himalaya
