Overview

A Tibetan-American filmmaker seeking to capture the tales of former political prisoners on film is drawn into the plight of Tibet's exile community in this drama from filmmakers Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam. Though she currently hails from New Your City, Karma Tenzin Chokyi Gyatso is one-hundred-percent Tibetan by blood. Upon arriving at the Indian border town of Dharamsala that is currently occupied by a number of Tibetan exiles, Karma makes the acquaintance of ex-monk Dhondup Jampa Kalsang, who has fled from Tibet after fighting against the government. Soon embarking on a journey with Dhondup to seek out the missing Loga Phuntsok Namgyal Dhumkhang and deliver to him a treasured charm box, Karma finds herself immersed in Tibetan Buddhist culture and forming a close bond with a handsome young Tibetan adventurer named Jigme Tenzin Jigme.
