Two friends from the UK set off on a road trip along the famous Pamir Highway, which winds through Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan, to find out what life is like for women in these countries.
Catherine and Hannah have just graduated from university and are embarking on the biggest adventure of their lives. In Bishkek they rent a jeep and embark on a journey of thousand kilometres through three countries. On their pilgrimage, they admire the vast plains and panoramas of the mountains. But this is not their goal – the filmmakers are mainly interested in the position of women in society. Throughout the trip, they meet women of all ages and varying social statuses who share their views on education, upbringing, and family life. Their courageous and inspiring stories show that the desire for equality is present everywhere in the world. Both travellers gradually realize they have much more in common with these women than they had ever thought.
