Summary Pria takes us to Daman, south west of Kathmandu, where shamanism is practised and the powers of the local witchdoctors are praised and respected in the local community. By contrast we meet a young Malaysian lawyer who has abandoned the trappings of capitalism to meditate and live simply in the mountains of Nepal. Pria also explores the backstreets of Kathmandu and Bakhtapur, a shaman's life in the mountains and the different styles of Nepali cuisine. (An SBS-TV production, in English and Nepalese, English subtitles)
