Delving deep into the emotional struggles of refugees and people who are forced to leave their home and culture and migrate to new areas, this soulful saga explores two stories from two different eras.
In the present, a Tibetan monk goes in search of sanctuary, meets a desperate young woman, trying to escape the terrors of the flesh trade and human trafficking, falls in love with her and must make some very difficult decisions.
This story is intricately interwoven with a complex love story from the past, in which a wealthy and accomplished courtesan falls hopelessly in love with a Buddhist monk, Upagupta.
What are the emotional battles that both the monks and their loved ones must face? How will their love stories unfold?
