Description

In a remote village in Bhutan, two generations coexist, starkly illustrating contrasting dreams and lifestyles — one, grounded in ancient Buddhist traditions and the other in a modern and secular world. The two collide in one family when a 16-year-old boy must decide whether he will comply with his father’s expectation that he become the next guardian of his family’s monastery, or follow his own path.
