Synopsis
The story of one family's struggles against Chinese oppression in Tibet picks up eighteen years after the murder of a Tibetan freedom fighter. The story focuses on his grandchildren who still live with their parents and grandmother, but have chosen to live very different lives. Dorjee drinks too much, has no job and hates the Chinese; his sister Dolkar speaks fluent Chinese, has a Chinese boyfriend, and is becoming a rising star as a disco singer; and cousin Pema has entered a Buddhist nunnery. Everyone's life changes after the Chinese forbid the displaying of the image of the exiled Dalai Lama. Pema is arrested and beaten to death when she cries out publicly for religious freedom, Dolkar reconsiders her career of singing Chinese propaganda on national television, and Dorjee is moved to join the resistance by submitting a videotape of Pema's story to an American journalist so that Pema's testimony can be smuggled out of Tibet.
