Tenzin Banjue, a young Tibetan monk living in the temple, takes a long way back home for the first time to visit his brother who is in a vegetative state from falling off the cliff.

Despite finding himself enamored by his brother’s fiancée, he refuses his mother’s offer to stay and marry her, who at the same time gets a marriage proposal from another man. Struggling between faith to his religion and truth to his heart of love, Tenzin, together with his brother and fiancée, takes on a soul-searching journey of five thousand kilometers.

“Tenzin Banjue, a young Tibetan monk, takes a long journey home to visit his brother who is in a vegetative state. Despite finding himself enamored of his brother’s fiancée, he refuses his mother’s demand to stay and marry her. Wang Qiang’s debut feature is a poignant portrait of Tibetans defending a vanishing culture with their sacred traditions. Combining spiritual musings and nature’s beauty, it’s an ode to pure love and the wisdom that brings light to life.” [HKIFF]
