A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
In 2005, Choki Dema learned how to drive. She is the first female taxi cab driver in the entire Trongsa district of Bhutan, and handles every bump in the road with grace and a twinkle of humor. Choki drives strangers over and through the hills. She runs a general store. And also takes care of her elderly parents and friends—and a middle-aged pug! Wearing so many hats would certainly exhaust most people, but Choki makes it all look easy. Join filmmaker Dawa Zangmo for an intimate passenger-side seat in Choki’s taxi cab, taking in the twists and turns of Bhutan’s mountainous roads—and Choki’s life.
