Internet and telecommunications have penetrated the world to a degree of not even being amazing any longer.We take the ability to connect to people and machines on the ...other side of the planet for granted. How does this technology adapt to a mountain village in Nepal, and how does the mountain village adapt itself to it?

„The High Cybercafe“ depicts the life of two young Nepalis working in a cybercafe in Namche Bazaar, on the trail to Mount Everest.We see their working day and take a side trip to the computer lesson at the local elementary school. We witness the change as it happens.
