Sunshine that Can Move Mountains
Tenzin Banjue, a young Tibetan monk living in a temple, takes a long way back home for the first time to visit his brother who is in a vegetative state after falling off a 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, sets off on a soul searching journey of 5.000 kilometers.
