THE FILM
From the World Cup in Germany to the remote Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan, three students are on a quest they hope will lead to wisdom. The catch is the teacher. Soccer obsessed, charismatic filmmaker, and citizen of the world, Khyentse Norbu may be one of the most eminent Tibetan Buddhist teachers, but its a job description he slyly seems to reject at every turn.

Featuring appearances by Bernardo Bertolucci, Gesar Mukpo and Steven Seagal
Filmed on location in the UK, Bhutan, Canada, the US, and Germany.
