Led by Apo, a wise and elderly monk accompanied by Sonam, a young monk, a caravan of lamas makes its way across the mountains in search of Tashi, a brilliant young disciple who is just completing three years of solitary meditation in a remote hermitage. Brought out of a deep trance, Tashi is taken back to his ancient monastery where he slowly recovers his strength. But Tashi’s return has unexpected results. Despite a life devoted to the rigours of spiritual development, he finds himself experiencing a surprisingly profound sexual awakening.
