Synopsis

Tenzin Banjue, a young Tibetan monk living in the temple, takes a long way back home for the first time to visit his brother who is in a vegetative state from falling off the cliff. Despite finding himself enamored by his brother’s fiancée, he refuses his mother’s offer to stay and marry her, who at the same time gets a marriage proposal from another man. Struggling between faith to his religion and truth to his heart of love, Tenzin, together with his brother and fiancée, takes on a soul searching journey of 5.000 kilometers.

 

Tenzin Banjue, seorang biksu muda Tibet yang tinggal di sebuah kuil, untuk pertama kalinya menempuh perjalanan pulang yang jauh demi mengunjungi saudaranya yang tengah dalam kondisi separuh tak sadarkan diri karena jatuh dari tebing. Meski mendapati dirinya terpikat oleh tunangan saudaranya, ia menolak tawaran ibunya untuk tinggal dan menikahi gadis itu yang pada saat bersamaan dilamar oleh pria lain. Berjuang antara iman akan agamanya serta kebenaran dalam hatinya yang penuh cinta, Tenzin, bersama dengan saudara dan gadis tunangannya itu, melakukan perjalanan pencarian diri 5.000 kilometer jauhnya
