Mira Rai is a young woman from a remote village in Nepal who always dreamed of being successful in sport. When she was older she travelled the long distance to Kathmandu to try her luck. Out of money, she was about to return home to her village, when by chance on a morning run, she meets another runner who tells her about a long running race in the local hills. She wins it and soon begins to realise her tough mountain village upbringing has prepared her perfectly for this sport. ‘Mira’ follows the journey of this spirited Nepali village girl on her pursuit to being a world-recognised mountain runner.
