Description

It is the true story of two young women who join a group of refugees to cross, at night and by foot, the highest mountains of the world. It is a tale of what refuses to vanish on the other side of the Himalayas: the spirit of resistance, the faith, the soul of Tibet.

15 Years-old Buddhist nuns who dare to challenge the Chinese invaders, children who are reincarnated deities, heroic teenagers and elders that come from another time, torturers and wise hermits, corrupt policemen and nomadic warriors. . . ‘The Mountains of Buddha’ is a tale of what refuses to vanish on the other side of the Himalayas: the spirit of resistance, the faith, the Soul of Tibet. It is the true story of two young women who join a group of refugees to cross, at night and by foot, the highest mountains of the world.

It is the true story of the Dalai Lama, who dedicates his life to keep the flame of hope alive for his people. It is the recent history of Tibet. It is, above all, the proof that crude force cannot destroy the human spirit.
