Meme Tshering, a 95 years old man living alone in his place of birth in a remote village in Eastern Bhutan, reflects on his children leaving the village, a diminishing community. He also reflects on his life as a whole. Home Alone highlights the bitter truth and effects of rural-urban migration, the loss of vitality in rural areas and modernisation.
