The isolated and inaccessible village of Zanskar is considered the last place on earth where traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture still exists. Seventeen young children are chosen to make the dangerous trek to a Buddhist school on the other side of the mountain – they are their people’s last hope to safeguard their cultural legacy for another generation. This emotionally driven documentary is narrated by Richard Gere and features His Holiness The Dalai Lama.
