Travel to the sacred temples, remote monasteries, and lively festivals of the Himalayan landscape with filmmaker John Bush in a cinematic pilgrimage into the heart of Tibetan Buddhist culture. All is not well in this central Asian region, however, and as Bush offers a compelling glimpse into a culture that has endured for centuries, his exploration of the Chinese efforts to destroy this ancient wisdom from within provides a poignant snapshot of a contemporary tragedy in the making.
