Alam Zawar grew up in a picturesque valley with forests and rivers set to the backdrop of snowcapped peaks. It was the kind of place that didn't change with time, where old traditions held dominant and were content to be left behind by the rest of the world. What happens to places like these when those bonds that held them together start falling apart? And how does a poor farmer boy deal with it, and all the rest that comes with growing up?
