From the World Cup in Germany to the mythical mountain kingdom of Bhutan this feature length documentary with an amazing soundtrack follows three Western students as they encounter a rascally, magical teacher, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, on a spiritual quest they hope will lead to wisdom. Their teacher is renowned as one of the most eminent Buddhist masters of our time and considered third in line to the Dali Lama. He is also a filmmaker whose first feature, The Cup, won accolades around the globe.
