The Cave Smile is a documentation of a journey for searching smiles into the caves in Chepang villages of Chitwan, Dhading and Gorkha districts.

Chepang is one of the marginalized ethnic groups of Nepal. They are around seventy thousand in number who are deprived of land and property by the government. Most of them have to survive with wild yam, tuber, taro, nettle greens etc. They like to live in high hills and mountains. Some Chepangs are still living in the cave.

Not far from the capital Kathmandu, Chepangs have been living wild lives from generation to generation in high hills. One can easily conclude after visiting the place that there is no sign of government’s presence. Near the villages, there are no health posts. One has to walk for five hours on the grid street to reach school.

The Cave Smile is narrative descriptions of seven senior Chepangs who are found dwelling in terrific caves in the remote jungle along with representation of miserable livelihood of whole Chepang community during a month long thrilling trip.

But, they all always smile from the bottom of their heart! They are living happily.

This is a beauty of life, and the director has caught this.
