Atimaley and Devi’s village is haunted by memories. When a dear friend leaves the village without saying “goodbye”, the old couple faces a dilemma; to keep living with the memories or to leave the village for good? Why create anything when everything ends as dust and grime? Is it for the sake of remembrance? Is it for the immortality of the subject or the ‘artist’ itself? Or for the hope that our ‘work of art’ will one day come alive and lift our souls from this mess of life ? ‘Dadyaa’ started out as an exercise to test these very themes around an old couple in the highlands of Jumla. But once again, life happened and the wonderful mess around it helped us as directors to draw parallels between our fictious world and the reality that exists in remote Nepal.
