Tha muinntir Nyimba a' fuireach ann an gleann ann an Nepal, agus seo far a bheil Gharjuwa agus a teaghlach. Tha teaghlaichean Nyimba stèidhichte air ioma-phòsaidhean bràtharail, le aon bhean agus aon dachaigh aig geach teaghlach.

Tha Gharjuwa pòsta aig gach bràthair ann an teaghlach, agus seo sgeulachd a beatha, far a bheil co-roinn agus dlùthachd eadar i fhèin agus a ceathrar fhear a thug dhi a ceathrar chloinne

In the valley of the Nyimba people, in Nepal, lives Gharjuwa and her family. The Nyimba practise fraternal polyandry where each family is built round a sole household and a sole wife.

Gharjuwa is married to all the brothers from one family; this is her story of a life of sharing and solidarity beside her four husbands who bore her four children.
