An apparently ordinary kid finds out that he is the Tibetan monk of the highest rank reincarnated from a past life, which grants him the noble title of Rinpoche. Displaced in his reincarnation in Ladakh, due to the political instability in the Tibet, he is away from his old monastery. For seven years, the camera follows the reincarnated boy and his old godfather in a dangerous journey through the depths of the Himalayas to find his place in the world, and faces them to questions about survival, maturity and a sacred order’s service.
