An ancient Buddhist scripture is discovered, which prophecies that a reincarnate lama is destined to propagate Buddhadharma for the benefit of all sentient beings. A senior Buddhist monk embarks on a long journey, in search of the person who will fulfill the prophecy. He finds a three-year-old boy, Rigzen Lingpa, who is then raised in a monastery and spends his life mastering the teachings of the Buddha.

When Rigzen Lingpa is a young lama presiding over a monastery in eastern Bhutan, he meets a modern young woman from city named Youden, who has returned home to her ailing mother. The lama and Youden experience a powerful connection and embark on an incredible journey together. What they discover will change their lives and challenge the conventional beliefs of their society.

Presented with the Bhutan Film Trust.
