A conversation about children dealing with trauma following the New York premiere of Tashi and the Monk in which a troubled five-year-old struggles to adjust a new life in a Himalayan community for orphaned and neglected children.
On a remote mountaintop a brave social experiment is taking place. Former Buddhist monk Lobsang has created a unique community in the foothills of the Himalayas which rescues orphaned and neglected children. Five-year-old Tashi is the newest arrival. Her mother recently passed away and she’s been abandoned by her alcoholic father. Wild and troubled, Tashi is struggling to find her place amongst 84 new siblings. Can the community’s love and compassion transform Tashi’s alienation and tantrums into a capacity to make her first real friend?
