Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom Storyline

A young teacher in modern Bhutan, Ugyen, shirks his duties while planning to go to Australia to become a singer. As a reprimand, his superiors send him to the most remote school in the world, a glacial Himalayan village called Lunana, to complete his service. He finds himself exiled from his Westernized comforts after an arduous 8 day trek just to get there. There he finds no electricity, no textbooks, not even a blackboard. Though poor, the villagers extend a warm welcome to their new teacher, but he faces the daunting task of teaching the village children without any supplies. He wants to quit and go home, but he begins to learn of the hardship in the lives of the beautiful children he teaches, and begins to be transformed through the amazing spiritual strength of the villagers.

Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom Movie Reviews

Fantastic movie that shows human pleasure of life is not based on consumer ideals

Such a simple movie plot of a young teacher who questions if he wants to stay a teacher or emigrate to Australia.

He is sent for his final service year to the highlands of Bhutan to teach in a village who have no electricity or even a blackboard in the school, yet the spirit of the villagers is so honourable and so thankful for what they have it is a pleasure to see how the community thrives and looks after each other.

The kids in the movie are real highlanders and had never seen a camera before this movie was made.

It is a fantastic insight into the human spirit.

A total joy to watch, this is one for an Oscar award.

See for yourself.


Lunana is the reason I watch movies to escape from the everyday realities of this harsh world. A selfish young man who is required by the government to teach is not happy with the situation. He dreams of becoming a singer in Australia to leave behind his life in Bhutan. Lunana is a remote village with no electricity or indoor plumbing. A “schoolroom” has no supplies but the children are eager to learn. The teacher is the one needing a lesson in humanity, and boy does he get one from the young ones. The scenery is spectacular, the cast exceptional and the story a captivating and hopeful wish for the rest of us. I was blown away by Lunana and am praying for the Oscar for best foreign language film for 2021.


Bhutan’s official entry to 2022’s Oscars, that also was shortlisted, is simple yet so emotional. It’s real, sweet, uplifting and heartwarming. It nicely tackles powerful and important topics like education in rural places, home and moving away. Cinematography and locations are amazing, with many stunning sceneries.
