Directed by young artist Obeth Sampang, the movie vividly depicts deepening attachment of Bhutanese youths and children towards different social media thereby ignoring “social interactions”.

The seven-minute long movie features Raju Sharma as lead character, who spends a single day in visiting various places expecting social interactions, but becomes desperate in witnessing firm attachment of youths and children towards social media.

Issac Rai has written script of the movie that features Pabitra Bhujel, Arjun Tamu, Gyam Baali Sampang, Sujan Subba, Tufaney Rai and Alisa Rai, among others.

“This is our first movie. Thus, we don’t have any plans of promoting the movie for commercial shows,” Raju Sharma explained.

“We have tried our best to give strong message through this movie. However, I have no idea how many of our well-wishers would be able to grasp the actual message.”

The Tassie Bhutanese Entertainment has produced “One Day” edited by Samundra Sharma.
