From the co-creator of Hoop Dreams, Frederick Marx, comes a film about a daring attempt to save Tibetan Buddhism in the Himalayas.

Narrated by Richard Gere, this inspiring film follows the audacious plan of two Tibetan monks to safeguard Tibetan Buddhist cultural heritage. Spurred by their promise to the Dalai Lama, they retrieve seventeen children from a remote and ailing valley in Kashmir and together march in the direction of far off Dharamsala, on the other side of the ice-bound Himalayas.
