Chances are you will not see a more unique film this year. Spectacularly located in the kingdom of Bhutan, this is the story of a young man, living in a tiny mountain village, who wants to visit America but gets endlessly delayed. Hitchhiking through the mountains, he meets an interesting group of travelers including a Buddhist monk who loves to tell stories. The trek provides an opportunity for us to share in seldom-seen location at the top to the world.
A film so enchanting one hates to see it come to an end... A warm, embracing film of transcendent beauty and spirituality. - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
