Highway movie trailer was first released on last September in Kathmandu.
Set among the breathtaking landscapes of Eastern Nepal, "HIGHWAY", the first full-length feature of director/producer Deepak Rauniyar, follows the journey of nine characters whose individual stories become accidentally interconnected during an ill-fated bus journey they take to the capital Kathmandu. The passengers - each of whom urgently needs to be somewhere else – find themselves stranded on the only main road due to an improvised and unlawful blockade known as a "bandh". While the journey is thwarted numerous times awaiting a resolution to the combustible strike, the film's story shifts into the characters’ psychological and spiritual "bandhs" that many Nepalis are contending with since the end of the bloody 12-year civil conflict.
