This is a 2D animated music video made for the song ‘Junkeri’ by a Nepali contemporary-folk musician Bipul Chettri. The song describes the beauty of fireflies under a starry night in the Himalayas. The film tells the story of Uncle, a middle-aged painter, who lives in a small cottage by himself in the hills. Day after day he diligently sets out to paint, hoping to create a piece that is different from what he usually paints. Uncle struggles with the monotony of his painting style and he is in desperate need of change. Unfortunately, a gust of wind knocks his easel down, damaging his painting. Just when all seems lost, Uncle encounters an enigmatic swarm of fireflies that mysteriously appears around him. The story then shows how his interaction with the fireflies unexpectedly becomes the guiding light for Uncle to seek the very change he longed for.
