Benchen Monastery Free Dental Clinic, established by Poles in 1998, offers free dental help for the Tibetan and Nepalese people. For seven years, Dr. Agata Turkiewicz has been spending her vacations in Katmandu, where from morning till evening she receives patients in a small room at the monastery. When the inhabitants find out about her arrival, they gather in front of her consulting room, some of them coming from the far-away mountains.

A film about small things that can bring happiness to others.
