Drawing the Tiger
 tells the story of a rural Nepalese family that has lived for generations as subsistence farmers, today surviving on less than a dollar per day. A beacon of possibility shines upon the family when Shanta, the eldest daughter is given a full scholarship to attend school in Kathmandu. Shot over seven years, the film begins as a straightforward victory for Shanta and women’s education more broadly. However, as life unfolds, Shanta does not return to free her family from poverty as all imagined she would. The pursuit of this opportunity amid her perception of family pressure exacts an unexpected cost.
